A literary clubhouse

Here's one to add to my scrapbook of possible future housing ideas: the New York Times has posted a slideshow and article featuring the salon/home of Richard and Lisa Howorth, who own Square Books in Oxford, Mississippi. They have gotten into the habit of inviting authors and other luminaries passing through town to stay with them in their five-bedroom home instead of at a hotel, so almost every week "a best-selling novelist or first-time author is likely to be sleeping in the downstairs guest room". Above, John Hodgman and Joey Lauren Adams hang out in the Howorths' living room. How wonderful would that be? (Photo by James Patterson for the New York Times.)
