Hop Into My Dream Reading Room

This week's Book Blogger Hop question is "What is the one bookish thing you would love to have, no matter the cost?"  

I would like a reading room that:
  • is sound proof to the rest of the house
  • has a lot of natural light
  • has a comfy reading chair. I like the sedan in this photo!
  • a huge bookcase for my growing collection of books
  • and a really bright, adjustable lamp.
There would be a desk for my computer, a small stereo and ...

the new nook color! I may have to seriously consider this e-reader. 

If you're stopping by from the Hop, hi! What are you reading this week?


  1. Following the mechanical bunny around...

    Anything bookish... A library at my fingertips at all times. Luckily I have my Nook :D It makes me mad that they just came out with the new Nook Color so shortly after I bought my Nook. I wish we got a discount to up grade!!!

    Sorry no post for hopping tonight but I have a new book review up.

  2. Awesome! Love it. I like that you would have natural lighting, much better on the eyes! Soundproof is also a nice touch. I too want an in-house reading room! It would be wonderful!

  3. Beautiful room! Much nicer than one filled with a large screen TV. My favorite genres are also historical and YA. I look forward to following your reviews!

  4. Love that picture, the sofa, bookshelf, light coming in, the rug, very nice.

    I want a coloured ereader also, I love my Kindle and said I will get the upgrade when they have one. The Nook is very nice though but I love everything about my Kindle so I will wait.

    I'm already a follower. I'm reading a Verse Novel, Glimpse right now and want to read Silence of the Lambs this weekend.

    Here is my post.

  5. Hi,
    I'm doing my rounds for the Blog Hop and Follow Friday so I'm stopping to say say hello. :) I hope you have a fantastic weekend. Am I invited to visit your reading room?

    I'm an new follower.

  6. Hi! I'm from the hop. I love your description of a reading room. Being sound proof and having a lot of natural light is something I never considered but definitely something I'd like. I'm also a new follower. =)

    To answer your question, I am currently in-between books. I read The Girl With the Pearl Earring and Shattered Mirror this week. I'd like to start reading The Curiosity Shop but I just need enough time to settle down and start it.

    If you're interested, my post is on my blog:

  7. I would love to have built in bookshelves that went all around the room. The only problem with that is I would feel like I should fill them up-- so I'd buy more books!
