I’m a sucker for books like My Ideal Bookshelf. La Force and Mount have gathered the favorite books of many writers and personalities and presented them in a unique fashion. Some of the book choices come from Malcolm Gladwell, Thomas Keller, Michael Chabon, Alice Waters, James Patterson, Maira Kalman, Judd Apatow, Chuck Klosterman, Miranda July, Alex Ross, Nancy Pearl, David Chang, Patti Smith, Jennifer Egan, and Dave Eggers among others. My Ideal Bookshelf is a browser’s delight. And, for that hard-to-buy-for book lover on your Christmas list, My Ideal Bookself would be an ideal present!
