‘Got all nice things’.

tttTop Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme where every Tuesday we look at a particular topic for discussion and use various (or more to the point ten) bookish examples to demonstrate that particular topic.  Top Ten Tuesday (created and hosted by  The Broke and Bookish) is now being hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl and future week’s topics can be found here.  This week’s topic is :

Bookish Items I’d Like to Own

  1. A lot more bookshelves – perhaps even magic ones that automatically organise my books.  I really don’t know why this can’t be a thing.  There are some great minds out there – they need to address this issue.  Really, is it asking too much?
  2. Not bookish because it can be used for other things – but a time machine or time turner – because, more time people.  More time.  Or cloning – cloning could work in the same way.  If I had ten of ‘me’ reading my current TBR who knows I could finish all my books in about 12 months/24 months – which means I could buy more bright and shiny new books without an ounce of guilt. Not that the guilt ever stopped me but….. stop looking at me like that.
  3. My own private reading room with THE most comfortable chair EVER.  Some sort of automatic drinks and snack machine and a wine cellar combined – omg, that is such a good idea.
  4. An amazing reading lamp – I know, I should have one of these but I don’t.  I just tend to make do – money is for spending on books after all.
  5. A t-shirt where I can be totally rude but people think I’m just being funny – like ‘yes, I’m reading a book, it’s really good and therefore I don’t want to stop to speak to you, goodbye’ – was that too rude???  I just hate the fact that people think because you’re reading you’re not engaged!
  6. A magic book voucher that never runs out of credit – that does sound quite a bit awesome after all.
  7. A huge amount of money – ‘why is this book related you’re thinking?’ because then I could just chill, read, blog and buy books until my little heart’s content.
  8. A magical kindle that never runs out of charge, knows automatically which parts of a book I want to note or highlight and why and basically writes the basic outline of my reviews.  What?  You know you want this too.  Joking – I love writing reviews (obviously) – I just sometimes wish that when I have a real ‘lightbulb’ moment about a book it was saved somewhere automatically because otherwise I sometimes forget.  *hangs head in shame*
  9. Automatic approval by all the publishers for all the books – plus fame and world renown for my brilliant reviews.  LOLOLOL
  10. Cheese and wine – whoops, wrong list.
  11. My own library – that automatically restocks with the books I have on my mind.  None of the books I want to take out of the library are ever on loan and the loan period just happens to coincide with when I finish the book.

I had one too many – this is what happens when you ask about bookish things!

    Wow , I really want some of these things 😣😣

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, not to be greedy but I want them all! Although, I would take a time machine and nothing else at a pinch.
      Lynn 😀

  2. Captain's Quarters

    Yup. I hear ya. One of me favorite shirts is about a snarky but cute unicorn. Link below if ye want to see it. The ladies at the library laugh when they see it. I want a book version too. Arrr!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – what a great T – I would love it. It’s as well I’m not a unicorn though because I use a lot of public transport and, well, pointy sharp horns – not a gopd idea when there are so many annoying people around.
      Lynn 😀

  3. Tammy

    Ha ha, love you list, Lynn! I want all the money too, then I could quit my stupid job and do nothing buy reeeaaaddd and blog!

    • @lynnsbooks

      All the money and all the books – GIVE THEM TO ME NOW.
      Lynn 😀

  4. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    Automatic approval would require a time turner as well, because, you know, TIME…
    But I just LOVE your idea for the T-shirt! You’re right when you mention people who think that interrupting your reading is not rude or annoying… 😉

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s – ‘oh, she’s reading so she’s not busy!’ – go away.
      Lynn 😀

  5. Barb (boxermommyreads)

    Cheese and wine are TOTALLY bookish things!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Ohh good, and phew – because I do tend to have a glass of wine (and occasionally a piece of cheese) when reading – lol
      Lynn 😀

  6. Michael

    I’m totally in on the cheese and wine part.

  7. Nicole Evans

    Oh, your list killed it. I think I also pretty much everything you listed, though No. 9 really did make me laugh. Great list, Lynn!

  8. Carmen

    HAHA…All your requests are great. Can they be mine too? 😉 Love 9 to 11! 😀

  9. Alyssa Cohen

    hahaha LOVE this post!!!

  10. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Yeah, for real, I would give up all the bookish swag and merch for just some extra shelves!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Shelves shelves shelves. Oh well, stacks will have to suffice.
      Lynn 😀

  11. Greg

    I’ll take a reading room too- that’s a fabulous idea. 🙂 And the bookshelves to go in it. And the time machine- definitely!

    These all seem quite reasonable. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      I think so too – who wouldn’t love a reading room. A little nook to call my own.
      Lynn 😀

  12. mervih

    Great list! I’d also love the time machine, lots of money, my own library… well, all of them, really. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, let’s have them all – it’s reasonable I think.
      Lynn 😀

  13. waytoofantasy

    LOL Best list ever. No matter how many bookcases I get I am forever wanting more. 🙂

  14. sjhigbee

    Now you’re talking – forget the quirky mugs and space-swallowing bookends THIS is the list I want to sign up with… Fabulous list, Lynn:))

  15. PerfectlyTolerable

    Great list! Very Clever 😀 If you had that magic book voucher and the magic shelves you could create the best library ever!!!! ❤

  16. jessicabookworm

    I want them all!

  17. Kathy @ Pages Below the Vaulted Sky

    YES I am ALL for this list. And I love the clone idea (even though every scifi I’ve ever read/watched/played has told me it’s a terrible one). But if I had multiple versions of me reading different books would I, the original, retain memories of what my clones read???

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – I don’t think I’ve put enough thought into the whole clone idea – if your clone reads your book – have you really read it. Yeah, maybe not – the clones can do all the chores and I”LL READ THE BOOKS – yay.
      Lynn 😀
