    I recently started a wishlist specifically

    for books on Amazon.com. It is the only specific wishlist I've ever made. My library will be a reflection of my soul. The contents of my library will be my team which I can look to for advice. The many authors of the works will be my mentors. It will be full of stories, self...

    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?

    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 !

    Does anyone still remember libraries?

    Libraries played an important role in my childhood. I grew up in a small town with the good fortune of a mid-sized library. From a young age I would walk there each week, borrowing 2-4 books from the children's section in the basement, the thrill of using my library card to...

    Simply because I love to read.

    I love reading whether it be online or an actual book, of course I like actual books better but I read off of wattpad an awful lot too.

    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...

    I've always, as a little girl,

    imagined to have an enormous library in my house. It's always been a dream and it still hasn't come true. I still wish for that. Books are literally life.

    My grandparents at one time,

    I don't just want a library,

    I think it's becoming a necessity. All these books stacked everywhere must be a fire hazard. Plus apparently towers of books in the bedroom isn't conducive to a sexy atmosphere. Who knew?

    We have a library at home - about 1500 books,

    ranging from history to poetry, humor to spirituality, etc. Sadly, few friends get it. No family. They ask "Why do you need so many books?" "Why, because each and every one has an insight or an idea or a story or a moment worth saving, coming back to, and sharing. A better...

    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...

    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 want to be surrounded by actual books!

    Yes Kindle and iBooks are okay. But there is something about the smell and feel of what I am reading that puts me at ease. Give me a home library and I will be complete!

    Library Of Knowledge

    I would love to have a huge library in my future house. Books are something I could easily get lost in whenever I am reading a book. Books have some much knowledge in them. Whenever I read a book, I feel like I am apart of the book. It is like I am one of the characters in the...

    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'd love to have a private library at home!

    Install a secret bookcase door as well to add a little magic. Whenever I see architecture photos/designs of home libraries I get a little jealous; but they provide heaps of inspiration! It'd be a cosy hideaway for studying/working or just enjoying some peaceful reading, plus you...

    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...

    I have 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 I have a place for all my books. It is a dream finally come true.

    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.
