Dreams is something I think we all have. Some are secret. Others might seem unreachable. While others might turn into actual goals you are working towards. As a book lover I of course have my own dreams to do with books. Some are more attainable than others.
Have my own home library
This is one I think a lot of book worms dream about. I would love to have one somewhat larger room that has various book cases spread throughout the room, set up like in the library. These book cases would be tall so I would need a wooden ladder to get the books on the top. The book cases would be organized by genre. So a lot of fantasy in my case.
The room would have at least one window with a window seat with lovely yellow pillows and a great view. In a corner there would be another reading corner where there are pillows on the ground for kids to read and a very comfortable chair to curl up on.
Some day I might get a seperate room with a chair for my book but I don’t think it will ever quite turn out like the one I described or what I have in my head, haha.
Work at the library
A more reachable dream would be to work at the library. To be surrounded by books would be great. As would taking care of these aging books as well. However I don’t quite have the papers for working in a library officially. Though I think for just working on the floor they don’t always require you to have papers.
Sci-fi/Fantasy book store
I think it was at the start of the year or the end of last year when a store in our shopping street became empty. It is a corner store that in the back has small steps to go upstairs and downstairs. Immediately I imagined opening an English sci-fi/fantasy book store.
But I have no business bone in my body to set anything like that up. And starting a specific book store like that in a small place like where I live is setting yourself up to fail. You would have to do something like that in the larger cities that also gets a lot of tourism like how The American Book Centre has two stores in Amsterdam and the Hague.
Even so I still imagine having a book store like that.
So do you have any bookish dreams like that? Or any other dreams?
