    I wanted a library in my home

    for the longest time and after a lifetime of collecting books, my wife and I had the 1st floor of our 140 years old house gutted and remodeled. In one room we decided to have a dedicated library and now I have a place for all my books. It is a dream finally come true.

    A Reading Room

    I found what I had been thinking about, one day, years ago. I went with my friend, to visit one of her writer friends. He had a nice small home in a very nice area of town. His home was probably built in the 5o's or 60's; one of those homes they would use as background or...

    What Would You Buy?

    I think it would be fabulous to have a home large enough for a library.  I would fill mine with first editions of all my favorites.  How about you?  What would be the first book you would purchase for your library?

    I had a library. I moved

    and donated all the books I loved to charity. I hope I will have another library and another large book collection someday.

    This Is Wonderful!

    Whenever I've mentioned this dream to most of my friends they end up staring at me like I've suddenly sprouted six extra eyeballs. Thank you for making me smile. :]

    But First I Need To Own Enough Books To Fill It!

    I think I should make this one of my life goals, to own a house (or maybe a large apartment/penthouse) and have one room that will be my library. I'll have to buy lots more books, which wouldn't be a problem providing I have the money to buy them. All the walls would have...

    Beauty And The Beast

    The library the Beast presented to Belle is the kind of library I would love. That one was animated, but I've seen real ones like it -- rich solid wood, multi story shelves filled with thousands of books, some beautifully bound, with a sliding access ladder. Dreamy.

    I love reading and I love writing,

    I love that we can hold history in our hands thanks to libraries. I'd love to have a library in my own home, kind of like from Beauty and the Beast, where Beast gives the library to Belle as a gift. Although I doubt I'd be able to have a library that big. The smell of a new book...

    I don't have an actual bookshelf,

    so I bought a huge bin. I figured I would never fill that thing up. But guess what? It's now overflowing. I have books crammed inside, on top of the lid, on my bed, under my bed, and scattered throughout the house. I still think it's not enough! So, I want a house with a...

    It will have secret tunnels,

    sliding ladders, overstuffed chairs, tables covered in melted candles and books everywhere. I'd have a small trunk where I'd keep my special books and all the others would fill the shelves to the very edge. They wouldn't be alone though. I'd have found objects lying up there...

    Someday I will have the perfect library in my

    home. Shelves of books will span the floor to the ceiling, and I really need to have one of those sliding ladders. I'll find the perfect lounger, a few side tables, and some soft lighting. A girl can dream, right?

    Kind Of Getting There !

    I've got a collection of books at my house

    stacked up everywhere along walls, in closets, and in the rafters. Don't' know if it's quite a thousand, but it sure seems so. I am due to sell some back to my local used book store, but there are so many I haven't read, or wish to re-read, or want for future reference that I...

    Words All Over

    I don't really have enough room in my bedroom

    to hold my books.. So it would be a lot better to have a library in my room! Maybe I can build my own house someday, and that it could have a nice, big library! :3

    The sound of pages turning,

    the smell of ink and paper. The hard cover pressing into my thighs as I curl tight during exciting scenes. Books that fill my arms and not just a hand. Classics and new authors, children's books, nonfiction, mystery, fantasy, westerns, poetry. I want a room filled with all of...

    I love books, even if I don't read all of them,

    but that's what life is for, so much time to sit and read. But the look of having books on shelves is so calming to me. I have so many books already, I will reach my goal.

    Me And My Books

    I badly want a library of my own. I want it to be HUGE, kinda never ending with almost all the books of the world in it... And I want it to be a secret. A lot like Dexter's Laboratory. So I can go there when I wanna be left alone, i.e., all the time.

    I love reading, and libraries are calming

    and comforting also very quiet so I think I'd quite enjoy a library in my house. Then I could just go down the hall and have lots of choices for books.

    I Can Not Wait To Have A House...

    I so dearly look forward to having a large window seat to curl up in and read, to have shelves apon shelves of good books accented with my "trophies" collected through the years, a fire place to read by when winter comes or the power fails. Oh i dream of it often.
