Library of my dreams.

Reading is one of my most favorite things to do. I can spend hours doing nothing else, I can stay up a whole night for a good book. I forget (almost) everything around me when I am reading. I have hundreds and hundreds of books. I am dreaming of my own library. It should look like this:


But with this chair

in front of this fireplace:


But now the most important part. I am not sure if everyone else in this world is dreaming of one of these but I MUST have one. A couple of years ago I saw one at a flea market but did not buy it. I still don't know why. It's kind of sad. It was perfect. I am dreaming of it since my childhood...I am not sure what that says about me because you use it to store alcohol. But anyway...this is it:


Isn't it fabulous? 
So someday I need to have a library in the tower of my house with a fireplace, an old barock chair and a house bar that looks like a globe.
Yeah, I have more weird goals in my life.

What do you dream of?

    1. oh, i have many suggestions. If you like funny books you should check out the Adrian Mole series by Sue Townsend. I have talked about it in my "Book club" post. I am a big fan of Skandinavian crime novels. My favorite writers are Henning Mankell, Hakan Nesser or Ake Edwardson. But also Arnaldur Indridason. He is from Iceland. My favorite historical book is "Die Päpstin". I think it is called "Pope Joan" in English. And I love to read all kinds of travel books.

  2. That alcohol holder thing is perfect! I hope you come across another one soon. And I'd love that chair in my personal library too. Maybe in pink though ;)

    1. It would look awesome in pink too! :) And yeah, I really hope I can find one of these alcohol holders again. They can be really pricy.

  3. Hi, Katrin! Thank you so much for dropping by! :D I love libraries, too, that's why I volunteer in one here in Ontario, Cali. If you have some free time, maybe you can look into if they need volunteers in your local library, I volunteer in the book sale area and get to see amazing books and magazines that of course I buy before we put them up for sale, haha. We sell books for $1 or $2 and magazine for 25c or 5 for $1; and we occasionally have special sales where we let people fill a grocery bag with material for just a buck ;). It's a great way to buy your favorite books :p.

    Hope you've started your week off with a huge smile! ;D

    Miki.

    1. I could spend the whole day in libraries. :) And it is a great idea, I will ask in my local library! I am sure you can find so many great books before you put them up for sale. I am sure I would walk out with tons of books! That's definitely an amazing way to buy some great books!
      Have a lovely day!
