If you're like me, you have someone (or a few) on your list this year who make an Olympic sport out of decorating (and redecorating) their coffee tables. You know the one. Always fresh flowers set out on the table. Collecting curious odds and ends to top her constant in flux magazines. And of course, the true pièce de résistance -- the hardcover book eye candy. As a self-proclaimed book worm myself, I love getting books (all kinds really!) at Christmas, especially ones that I can curl up with, coffee in hand, and flip through for hours. Here are a few I already have bookmarked (har, har) for a few friends -- how about you? Any favorites you've been meaning to check off your reading list lately?
