On funds drawn from a Christmas gift card to Borders Bookstore, I purchased this wonderful hardbound volume: my first official coffee table book!

Filled with awe-inspiring images taken by the nuclear-powered Cassini space probe orbiting Saturn, and accompanied by informative text, this is a great coffee table book for space enthusiasts to dress their living rooms with. Now all I need is a coffee table to put it on.
