Got books?  Then this project has to appeal to your sensibilities.  Choose the tomes you're not going to want to read again and have at it.  See more cool book tables from the lovely Laura Fenton over at AOL Home.

So Many Questions

You can see all of the questions and answers at this location: http://www.formspring.me/magruffman
