  1. What books do you have?

    I think you can tell a lot about someone by their coffee table books.


    When I moved into my apartment, I got so excited at the idea of having my own coffee table books in my own coffee table. When I picked the table out, I purposely made sure it was wood with glass over it, so I could put the books underneath. That way I can put stuff on the table and see the books through the glass.


    Mine: from L to R

    Top row: I Love Lucy: The Complete Picture History of the Most Popular TV Show Ever by Michael McClay
