Books your table will be proud of


Anonymous Patron writes " Recommends some coffee table books this year. Sure, they're beautiful -- often printed on the finest heavyweight paper, elegantly laid out, heaving with photographs and filled with rich musings from literary prize-winners (or, just as often, no text at all beyond captions and credits).

But, all too often, they merely take up space in the doctors' offices of our land, browsed through for five minutes before the next patient is called."


I wish I only had to wait five minutes at the doctor's. I also wish they had those nice coffee table books--they're better reading material than three month old Newsweeks. You must have a better class of doctor than I do :-)
