Loved the video. I share the same belief of learning through osmosis with all of my books I have not read.

I laughed about the cookbooks in your book case tour..."not much going on there"...LOL! Same here! I envy your built-in book shelves...! :-) I did get a small list of books to check out from your video including SuperCorp, Living A Beautiful Life, and The Alchemist. Thanks for sharing!

Such a fun video! Thanks for sharing. I've read several books from your recommended resources before -- so inspiring! Prompted me to get out my paints, colored pencils and take art classes for the first time in years. Life changing!

Absolutely love your collection! You are such an inspiration and I am so happy that you share the parts of your lief that you do!

I love that you are currently reading about 50 books. I was recently interviewed about my work and asked where I get my design inspiration. I guess I should have said, "The Art Institute, the great architecture of Chicago...I don't know what." What I DID say was, my book shelves...a line of poetry can set the whole mood for a room. Books and fabric stores. So much for high-end interior design theory!

My husband thinks I'm insane with the books piled up on my side of the bed . . . I shared your video with him - thanks for validating the bibliofiles! Do you know about LibraryThing?? It's an online catalog - but it's also like a social networking tool - connecting people to books ;) Enjoy! Alexis

C'est La Vie is a great book. I read it in 2007. Your head will be swimming in daydreams of living in Paris!!
