"I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library..."
-Jorge Luis Borges
My dream is to have a room with walls that have built in floor to ceiling dark beautiful wooden shelves stuffed and packed with books. I want rolling ladders, soft thick carpets, plush arm chairs that swallow me draped with cashmere blankets. I want good light and a table that holds a cup of tea. I want a crackling fire place and a big fluffy dog sleeping in front of it. Did I mention the floor to ceiling books? Novels, novellas, biographies, photo books, fiction, non-fiction, fantasy, drama, mystery, poetry, love stories, sad stories. I want it to smell like worn soft paper, leather binding the fireplace and great ideas. I don't think I am asking too much.
(remember what Disney princess this library belongs to?)
Tomorrow is going to be a tricky Written Word post. I am going to have to make some tough decisions and I want you all to join me! I am going to force myself to list my Top Ten Texts! The top 10 books I want as permanent fixtures in my life. The books I could read and read again. My favorites. I want you all to share your Top Ten Texts with me- so we're going to do a little blog linking. I think you can learn a lot about people by what they're favorite books are. So start thinking and tomorrow get linking!
