Blog Hop!


Friday's Book Blog Hop is hosted by Jen at Crazy for Books.

This week's question:

"What is the one bookish thing you would love to have, no matter the cost?"


Much like Jen, I have great ideas for how to create a home library. I would love to convert our garage into a library with floor to ceiling bookshelves on three walls. The fourth wall would have floor to ceiling windows overlooking our wooded backyard. Iwould finally have enough space for my entire book collection instead of having it boxed and shelved in various places. A large ladder on wheels, comfy leather furniture, and writing area would complete the room. Sadly, I don't foresee this happening anytime in my future. My home library plan continues to change over time, so maybe by the time I can actually afford something like this (if ever) my vision will be entirely different. It is a nice dream, though.

Hopefully, the busy weekend I have planned will still allow me to hop around to some other blogs. I also need to find time to update my blog roll since I have found a lot of great new blogs through the Hop!

Enjoy your Friday!

I like your idea of the library overlooking the woods. Unfortunately my garage doesn't afford any pretty views. I like your blog and am a new follower :)

This was a nice dream post wasn't it :-) I like the ladder on wheels and floor to ceiling bookshelves.

A garage library sounds wonderful. Happy weekend. My bookish wish involves a remodel. Here's what I'd do if I had the time and money.

Oooh, I want my library to overlook the woods too! Excellent idea... maybe some woods on the edge of the ocean, or another great body of water XD
