Coffee table fashion statement
You can call me a bibliophile. If I walk into a bookstore, I can't help but buy something, especially if it catches my eye. Independent bookstores are almost even worse, because half of the books are used, and for some reason, I'm more into buying tattered and worn books because they have "character." I recently bought a first edition of Profiles of Courage because it was written by then-Senator Kennedy and looked vintage.
I've accepted the fact that I judge books by their covers, and now I'm into buying style books based on just that. Large fashion hardcovers with striking facades can be artfully displayed on a coffee table. I'm slowly working my way up to my very own collection, but here are a few of the ones I'd choose.
