Books


This was my library at school. Picture this only more beautiful and in your own home...it's enough to make you swoon....sorta.

B is for BOOKS. I love books. My favorite store is Barnes and Noble. I love all books. Old books, new books, fiction, non-fiction, memoir, biography, history. I love them all. I get excited when I walk into a book store or the library. Patrick hoards music and CDs...i hoard books. Someday I am going to have a beautiful library in my home. It's going to have floor to ceiling, built in bookshelves in a deep dark wood. On one end there will be a huge fireplace with a great mantle and overstuffed reading chairs on a huge soft, plush carpet that covers the hard wood floors. On the opposite end of the room there will be a huge floor to bay-type window with a bench along the bottom and long curtains on either side. It will over look the huge backyard that is lined with huge trees, so I can sit and watch the snow fall in the winter and listen to the rain in the spring and summer (this means that i'll need to move somewhere that it rains and snows frequently). In front of the window facing the room will be a massive old oak desk. I'll sit here and work on whatever academic research i may be pursuing at the time because, of course, i'll marry rich so i won't have to work and i can be the eternal student. This will be my sanctuary from the world and it will be lined with books. Books, books and more books!

I know, i'm a nerd.

I cleaned houses for a summer and one of our clients had this huge, gorgeous house in which they had this lovely library. It had built in mahogany bookshelves that were floor-to-ceiling along two walls and surrounded the fireplace (A big beautiful fireplace in Vegas!), it had a substantial desk and a few very comfy-looking chairs in various parts of the room, and of course, probably a couple thousand books. I was in awe of that room. I want one just like it in my dream house.

I love how the smell of Barnes & Noble hits you when you walk through the door.

Wow, Kelly! I love the picture you painted of your dream library. I want one like that too, but I don't see that happening for me. Just beautiful though. I want to come there and read a book.
One flaw that I see, if your dream is to live in California. . . does it snow enough there?
I have always dreamed of a gas log fireplace with a remote. I picture myself sitting on my couch, a fluffy handmade quilt tucking me in, an engrossing book in hand, the snow and storm going on outside (of course a window, so I can watch its progress occasionally), with NO obligations, and phone OFF the hook. Then I point that remote and "whoosh" the cozy fire begins and I open my book. . .
