This is the sort of thing I covet; expensive limited edition books. Pretty books. Books with leather binding. Books that come in slipcases. Books with tipped in illustrations. Books printed on creamy paper. And the wondrous words inside that can transport me to other worlds. It’s also about the words. But mainly it’s about the feel, the smell, of a fine or old book, which for me can never be replaced by an e-reader.
So now you know a little bit more about me, because this is the sort of thing that I covet. Books, lovely books. What I want to know is… Which items do you secretly covet? Shoes? Purses? Shiny knicknacks? What “luxury” items sets your heart to palpating?
|Yes, these are mine. This represents maybe an eighth of
the books I personally have hoarded within our home.
