Book Blogger Hop...


The Friday Book Blogger Hop is hosted by Crazy For Books, and today's question is:

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

Ahhh....this is a very, very dangerous question.  Similar to Crazy for Books, and I'm sure you all may feel the same way, too...I'd be super ecstatic to have my very own separate large library in my home.  You know the kind -- the kind you find in London or Italy, dark wood, an open middle with a spiral stairway leading up to the second level...this is the closest picture that I could find.

Sigh.  One day.


Happy Reading!

  11. I'm coming to visit when you add that on. I'll just sleep in the library!

  12. I love your library! Now that's what I want in my house....but I think I'd have to get another house to fit that library!

    Thanks for stopping by our blog, Brazen Broads Book Bash!

  13. Oh, yes! A library filled with floor to ceiling bookshelves, big comfy chairs - and a spiral bookcase, I hadn't thought of that - would be fantastic!

    Stop by my blog to check out our new Friday Wish-list Hop!

  14. Glorious! The only thing I would change in that room is the chair. A library needs a collection of big, pouffy, comfy chairs. The other thing I would have to add is time. My one bookish desire would be to have heaps and heaps of book reading time.

  15. How amazing is that Library/bookshelves!!!! *Sighs a sorrwoful sigh* I would love it!

    Mine is owning a bookstore!!!

    Hope you hop by for the hop....

  19. I also would love to have a home with shelves all over the walls, and am always trying to convince my husband that we need to find a house like that! Great minds think alike!

  21. Oh, total bliss! Love that photo and that fantasy...of course, I would also need a housekeeper to make sure everything is dusted! LOL

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  25. I'd like a room just like yours. :)

    But failing that: I'd like a newly discovered first/first signed copy of Pride and Prejudice. HA!

    Then I'd probably sell it and buy the library.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love that room, except I would need a fireplace so I am envisioning a fireplace somewhere off camera. :) Happy reading

  32. I as well, would love a library that big for myself! Actually found a picture of one I would just LOVE!

    Now following!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh this picture is to DIE for.

    ReplyDelete
  34. That is a wonderful library. Oh to have that much room for books! I notice we have similar reading interests. I am a new follower :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. That is exactly the library I was picturing when I answered the question today. Except I would like a larger window so I can see the garden outside. And I assume there is a fireplace in there too, just out of range of the camera!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Whoa! I want that too- that library would be fantastic. Much better than my overloaded bookshelves!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks for hopping by. That picture is seriously beautiful. All that polished wood is making my mouth drool a little. Amazing choice. Have an awesome weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  38. OOOOOOO so want that too......

    PLEASE LOTTO TICKET... Please....

  40. I could live in that library! Hopping by, already a follower...

    ReplyDelete
  41. That would be wonderful, your own separate library! Requiring a pretty big house, perhaps on a forested lot or by the beach, with a couple of horses :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. It is lovely. The warm wood is wonderful--and all those books!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh yeah - wouldn't that be just amazing! I am with you!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Bookish minds think alike! I love the idea of a spiral staircase! Pretty sure I would spend more time in the library than in my bedroom =)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I am green with envy over that one for sure. I'm speechless :(

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thanks to everyone for stopping by! Please feel free to come by again!
