Good Reads

I typically have several books on the go at any given time: a good fiction novel and a couple of beautiful books that I always seem to come back to again & again: [caption id="attachment_1692" align="aligncenter" width="388" caption="Jackie O's style never gets old"]9780821227459_388x586[/caption]

Have had this book for years but am now just fully reading it. Interesting to learn about Jackie Kennedy's role in restoring the White House as a historical treasure for the public to enjoy. Of course the fashion is fab.

Great home decor book. As a former contributor to Domino, the laid-back aesthetic is similar to the much-loved, now defunct magazine.

A beautiful collection of people, places & things. The kind of book that is meant to be dogeared and flagged (although I can't bring myself to bend the pages).

A good, interesting read. See it before the movie comes out.

Again, you just want to read this.
