Reading Rooms.

I have dreamed of having a library of my own since I was a little girl when I watched Beauty and the Beast for the first time… The thing that struck me the most about that movie was how HUGE the Beast’s library was! And that ladder! I knew I wanted one of my own someday. That dream hasn’t changed, although perhaps the scale of it has. These days I would be happy with a small room (or really even a closet if we’re honest) for my books to call home.

Usually I would do a post like this on a blustery Fall or Winter day, but since our Summer has been a bit confused this year, I thought it fitting for today. There is nothing I would rather do today than curl up on a comfy couch with a cup of tea and a good book… especially if it’s in one of these beautiful rooms. What about you… Do you have a special place for all of your books? Or maybe a spot where you can escape with just one?

    Well, as a librarian I manage to spend a fair amount of time in a library setting anyway…

    At home I discovered that while I like the look of books, I hated keeping up with dusting them and really hated dusty books that soon become musty books. My home library resides behind glass doors now and it makes the whole place feel fresher and bright.

    It would be just grand to have a ladder too…

    Right now most of my books are stored up in the attic while we renovate our home. The problem with my books though is that they’re mostly paperback… and the lovely libraries you’re sharing are definitely filled with special hardbacked books! When our renovation is completed though I hope to have a cabinet (with doors) in the family room to store my paperbacks in, and a comfy sectional sofa to curl up in while I read my day away!!
