Books to LIVE by

by Gabi Anderson Courtney

You  might be someone who loves to read books on an iPad or any other digital device, but let me tell you, there is nothing like a good old-fashioned paper book.

Might not be the most environmentally friendly, but magic lives in the pages.

Having quite an extensive library, I am definitely an old-world gal when it comes to books.

Here are some of my favourites that also work great as  coffee table books.

Take a sneak peek into the world of this icon and get advice and ideas on anything from fashion to accessories to lifestyle to travel.

LIFE OF STYLE by Rebecca Moses

This is a supreme feel-good book and I have to admit, one of the favourite pieces in my library. There is so much soul in it, I find myself flicking through it nearly every day. It is my ultimate mood enhancer.

PICTURING NEW YORK by MoMA

I picked up this book at a museum and am I glad I did. These pictures of old world New York are beautiful, enchanting and take you back to an era that you will wish you could visit.

The ultimate coffee table book.

SKINNY BITCH by Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin

Your life will never be the same after reading this book, I can promise you that. This book has entirely changed my eating habits and I will never look at food the same way.

PABLO ESCOBAR MY FATHER by Juan Pablo Escobar

Being history obsessed, I loved reading about Pablo Escobar from no other than his son. This amazing man, (who now goes under the name of Sebastian Marroquin), managed to rise above everything that the universe has thrown at him, and made a life for himself against all odds. A man with a strong heart and a true soul who refused to hide.

RUSSIA A PICTURE MEMORY by Bill Harris

As a travel addict, I'm sad to say that I have never been to Russia. It is definitely on my bucket list and this book makes me want to go there even more. Stunning pictures from the entire country, this book has a special place in my library.

THE WORLD ACCORDING TO KARL by Thames & Hudson

No explanation necessary. King Karl says as it is and we all need to listen and take it all to heart. Currently rearranging heaven's wardrobe, there is no one like him.
