I have picked some of my favorite new design books that have just been released that I am looking forward to having lined up on my bookshelves. I have a moratorium on purchasing anything I have to move but since I should be moving into my almost completed newly renovated home these should arrive from the Brown Santa just about the time my library is completed! I doubt this will be all of the books I will add to my collection this season, but these should keep me happily turning pages for a quite a while curled up on a sofa in front of a roaring fire.
