Why Did She Put Her Textbook in a Blender?!

What to do with old textbooks, especially when publishers keep insisting on coming out with updated versions every time you turn around? Turns out, you should put your textbook in a blender!

Laurel C. Miller, an alumna of University of California, Santa Cruz, has a creative solution–turn them into concrete!
