Book Blogger Hop Oct. 29 - Nov. 1: Bookish Dreams

Book Blogger Hop This week's Book Blogger Hop question is:
"What is the one bookish thing you would love to have, no matter the cost?"
There are two different answers to this question for me.  If you've read any recent posts to my blog, or know me in real life, then you know I am a writer.  It is my dream to be a published author.  Of course, I write because I absolutely love to do it but I do want to be published.  Making this dream a reality isn't so much about financial cost as it is perseverance and patience.  I'm confident that I will become published, though.

My second bookish dream is to one day own a home with enough space for my family and a home library.  I want a room with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves (filled with books, of course), windows for lots of natural light and so much comfortable, cozy seating that family and friends will flock to this space.  I want to spend real family and friend time in our own personal library.  Talking amongst one another will be highly encouraged but television and texting of any sort would be banned.  I know I sound like such a throwback but that's completely all right with me.

  6. An anti-TV & texting room is not a throwback--it's an option that should exist when we need a necessary disconnect from technology. Love the idea...it sounds like a new favourite room to compete with the kitchen :D

    Here's my post. Have a great Hallowe'en :)
