my ideal bookshelf

myidealbookshelf1_grande we snagged this book for ben's mom for christmas because, well, what a cool idea!  a book that compiles the "ideal bookshelves" of some very interesting people!

but, do you know the backstory?  it started as this.  again, cool right?  a custom-made piece of art that displays your favorite reads.  amazing.  which books would be in your ideal bookshelf?

and p.s. i have no clue how my hubby would narrow it down.  he has about a bajillion books.  i know that one day our home will have one of those fancy libraries with the sliding ladders a la beauty and the beast.  {sigh}
