It's no secret that I love a good book, or a good bookshelf. It's essentially my dream to have a room in my future house that is filled with books. A room something like one of these [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
But I had an epiphany the other day. Buying a book is like buying a piece of art. With so many less expensive and more convenient options, the only tangible benefit of a book is it's beauty. So yes, I do buy books partially because of their covers. Partially. It's true, and I don't think that's a bad thing.
Are you a book-buyer or a book-borrower? What do you think of my little books-as-art theory?
