Top Ten Bookish Things That I'd Like To Own

My picks for the Tuesday Top Ten, as invented by The Broke and Bookish. This week's theme: Top Ten Bookish Things (That Aren't Books) That I'd Like To Own (new bookshelves, bookends, cool bookmark, a bookish shirt, etc. You can add things you DO own if you want).

    1. Reading Room/Home Library

    2. A Bookcase in every room (I do mean every room!)

    3.These Bookends: But they're super expensive, and I'm super cheap.

    4. A Prime Membership to Amazon, so I could access the lending library.

    5. I would like a decent book light; I have one that's LED, but the light is too white, and it hurts my eyes to look at the page. Something with a soft yellow glow wouldn't suck.

    6. A purse that could safely conceal my Kindle while carrying my other purse items.

    7. A Secret Lair. Seriously, sometimes I just want a place to read where no one can find me and bother me.

    8. I would like a portal to go back in time and into a fictional world so I can warn Cedric Diggory and alter the course of events.

    9. I want the iPod Marge used in China Mieville's Kraken.

    10. And a repeat offender: I want to see one of my stories published someday.


  1. Great list-love those bookends! I wonder if there's a cheaper version available somewhere?

  2. A secret lair. You are a genius. I hate interruptions too. Great list.

    My TTT

    1. I was very surprised I didn't see more lairs on lists, lol...Plenty of reading nooks though.

  3. I love those horse bookends - they make me think of The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater, which I just finished and absolutely loved. I highly recommend it if you haven't read it already. :-)

    My TTT.

    1. GRs keep recc'ing that for me, but I've been hesitant to add it to my list; I was worried it might be too young. -- I stopped by your blog to see if you had a review up, I see you're still reading it. I'll drop in again, so I can read more of your thoughts on the story. :-)

  4. Hee, a secret lair! It's always the worst when you're reading a really good book and people are bothering you.

    1. ...And you can never adequately explain to a non-reader why its wrong to interrupt someone who is reading...


Thank you for taking the time to leave me your thoughts! I try to respond to all comments and questions, so come back soon!
