BOOK WORM

My collection of coffee table books is growing by the pile thanks to insane discounts and impulse buys on Joss & Main and One Kings Lane. I tend to check out novels and other less decorative reads from my local library but these spaces from Lonny have me wanting to expand my book collection in every which way…

Tell me: what kinds of books do you invest in? Are there any life-changing reads (or at least really pretty covers!) you’d recommend adding to my collection?

  1. Either classic novels, ones that I know I’ll read over and over, and history books. Since I’m a social studies teacher, I figure I’ll use those forever!

    There are so many pretty editions of classic books- I have an Alice in Wonderland one that is so pretty it has to be displayed.

  2. I love design books, photography and art books. I use them when I stage houses so that is how I justify the expense! I think coffee table books are simply one of the best accessories.

  3. I have been collecting design books for the last couple years but there are still a lot more that are on my wish list! I’m trying to resist getting TOO many before we move again in the next two years… they are the heaviest after all! I’ve slowed down buying novels and anything besides art books, but when I do I hit a used bookstore and look for a hardbound copy. They look so much nicer!
