It is a truth universally acknowledged that if you have a love of reading, you have a love of anything that reflects or enables that love. A true bibliophile does not have just books on her most-wished-for list, she also has things on that list that will promote the good health and well-being of those books. With that said, here are my top ten bookish things that I’d like to own.
Really, I would love one of these. There are so many that I am in love with that I could, literally, cover the walls to my reading room (someday) with them, but then where would the bookshelves go?
2. A Reading Room
Speaking of reading rooms… what bibliophile does not long for a space of their own to just fill with books? Someday… someday….
It’s no secret that I’m a wimp when it comes to physical pain – that’s why I think these Jane Austen temporary tattoos are just the thing. Also, that way when I flip-flop from loving Elizabeth Bennet or Elinor Dashwood more… then I can merely wash off and re-apply! (I know they are only $8 but still, it’s hard to justify spending $8 on something so silly but oh…I want it so)
4. Personal Library Kit
I would actually need several dozen of these, but oh how I’d love a more efficient way to keep track of the books I loan out.
5. Personal Library Embosser
Since the library kit may be a bit impractical for me, I thought I’d also include this lovely gadget. Personalized with a seal of your own design, this would be a beautiful thing to own.
Go away eye-strain. I’m looking at floor lamps now for my room as I prepare to enter graduate school this fall and I’m drooling with desire over this one. With the hefty price tag on it, however, I don’t see it happening.
7. These Toms shoes
…but in size 10. I cry that I missed my chance here.
Speaking of cute shoes….
These beautiful coasters top my list of things I will be getting soon. Or something very like them.
Every time I start to get lonely, I just think of the multitudes of characters I’ve spent the night with over the years … and all without having to worry about my health! =) This pillow is perfect and I just adore it to pieces.
