Depending on how many you get, I would make a chair out of them. Sure, it'll be heavy as all get out, but it will be a real conversation piece. All you would need to add would be cushions!

I use such books for a foot rest for kids in my class who are a little too short for the chairs we have for 5th graders. I stack 2 or 3 books together, depending on size, wrap them with duct tape, then make them available for the students who need or want them. They work very well and just have to be "reduct-taped" occasionally.

Bathroom toilet squat platform? Good idea. A good supply of emergency paper.
