First, I would like to send my thoughts, prayers, and deepest condolences to the people of London and any who were affected by the horrific events of today--I'm just so, so sorry. I had the same sick feeling in my stomach as I had on September 11; it really makes you wonder about the world we are bringing up our families in. I really don't want to vent too much about this because I try to keep my political views to myself. So again I will just say my thoughts and prayers are with your city and country--God Bless.

Coffee table books
My own personal definition of a coffee table book is a book that is large, over-sized, has lots of pictures, is about a specific theme (e.g., Georgia O'Keeffe's 100 Flowers, steeple chasing, Disney Animation, the Golden Gate Bridge, etc.) and generally speaking not something that most people would sit down and read in an afternoon. Coffee table books are often displayed singly or in piles for the benefit of guests to peruse, to stimulate conversation, because they look good, or whatever.
Do you have any coffee table books?
Do you have one or two, or would you say you have a collection of them?
I have more than two but I wouldn't say that I have a collection.
Do you keep them on your coffee table? If not, where?
I don't own a coffee table(we use an ottoman--you don't risk cracking little heads open on an ottoman, but a coffee table--well the odds aren't good). We keep our coffee table books on a shelf in our living room and on a stand in the bedroom.
What are they about?
There are a couple Anne Geddes ones, quite a few Disney ones, and some animal ones--I don't know if any of my knitting books could double as coffee table books, but I never get tired of looking at A Gathering of Lace and my Starmore books. I have my eye on a couple photography books by Viggo Mortensen--why, you may ask--well I've heard he's a talented photographer and he's on the "list" LOL!
Have you read them? All of them? None? Why?
Most of them don't have that much text but those that do I have read. I read them because I really hate having a book in my house that I haven't read.
