Book Decor: For People Who Can't Read Good

Book Decor: For People Who Can't Read Good

Considering my girlfriend and I spent the great part of Saturday reorganizing our whole apartment to accomodate for our ever-increasing book collection ("Hmmm, do you think we can put a shelf above the water heater?"), I can't believe there's a whole business that revolves around selling books by the yard, book or by colour selection for decorating purposes...

BookDecor.com offers the non-reader a selection of European leather bound books to decorate the home or office not with literary pursuits in mind, but for the sheer appearance of academic interest as an aesthetic solution. This is great for set designers and for house staging, but we're going to poo-poo this idea when it comes to everyday homes as extraneous and downright silly. That all being said, I'm really curious to see what kind of tomes I'd receive, since I'm a mild bibliophile and my girlfriend is a librarian. But at $6-$28 per book, we're fine with just purchasing and then displaying books we've actually read, even if they don't compliment our decor.
