I was a bookseller for about six years, and one of my favorite things about working in a bookstore is when a really exceptionally stunning new book comes in and all the booksellers crowd around the info desk to look through it. There are so many cool books - especially nonfiction - that are so pleasing to the eye. These make great gifts!
