Incorporating books

I grew up surrounded by books. My dad's bookcases contained history, science fiction, politics, and more. My mom's bookcases contained art, accounts from early pioneer women, interior design, cookbooks, and more.

Early on I latched onto the idea of incorporating cookbooks into our design. Oh Lovely Day noted that vintage books were appearing everywhere.
I've seen some neat uses of books beyond centerpieces by brides. Starting with the upcycling of a vintage book for use as a day planner (DIY Tutorial on Just Something I Made).
For wedding invitations (seen on The Violet Hours).
For a guest book (DIY Tutorial on Ruffled).
For escort cards.

Do you have a love of books? Are you incorporating them into your wedding? How?
