How about books that reflect personal interests like travel, museums, artists, sports, collectibles, etc. Your home should be about you and not a selection that just looks pretty.

I love coffee table books but I like to keep it to a minimum (2-3 max) so as to not look overwhelming. I also like to keep them neutral - something that anyone, man or woman, young or old, could pick up and would find interesting - something like travel or pets.
