Have you ever wanted to know how you can convert a kitchen shelf/cabinet into a bookshelf? Have you ever wondered whether or not you've been putting away your dishes with propriety? Well, you're in luck, because all of your answers are in here, the Official Instruction Manual for Shelves!

Yes, you've heard me! It's the Official Instruction Manual for Shelves. It slices! It dices! It can cut through materials no harder than yogurt! But that's okay, because it's utility as a knife is really ancillary to its true use a book! Yes, you've heard me! It's a book, though, to everyone's dismay, not a very good one! But, ask this to yourself: when's the last time you've seen something that was called both a book and a knife!?

*Unintelligible announcer reads a great deal of passively vituperative legalese at breathtaking speed*

       It's strange! It's odd! It contains a lot of exclamation marks! If it were big enough, it could be used as a bookend instead! If you add it to your collection, visitors will think you're stupid! It'll make a great conversation piece, though friends may feel compelled to use one-syllable words you can understand!

       This was our official course book when I did my "Theory of Shelfalism and applied Shelfalogical Studies" degree at Shelfington University.

       big enough to use as a kitchen stool and a stepladder to the top shelves.

       Not bad, if people can write whole books on making toast, why not have a whole book on shelves?   

       Seriously though, how many accidents a year are caused by overloading poorly fixed shelves? Or hanging shelves in odd places where people hit their heads? Or... um...
