Day 2 of Things I Love: Books

When it comes to books, I'm old fashion. No kindle for me. I like the sound of the pages turning and the smell of old leather. I want to be able to curl up with a cup of tea and read. I love the classics, the trashy, the trendy, but most of all, I love design books. I also love cook books and have quite a collection. I'm not sure if that's a hint from friends and family that give them to me, but I really do love sitting down and flipping through the pages to create a meal when I have time to do so. Some of my favorites are

My French Life by Vicki Archer

Hue by Kelly Wearstler

An Affair with a House by Bunnie Williams

Lipstick Jungle by Candace Bushnell

Sara Foster's Casual Cooking

Barefoot Basics by Ina Garten
