Top Ten Tuesday (bookish things on my wish list)

http://brokeandbookish.blogspot.com/p/top-ten-tuesday-other-features.html



This week's topic: Top Ten Bookish Things (That Aren’t Books) That I’d Like To Own.
 
1. I’ve been on the search for the perfect bookmark for years. Years! It must be pretty but indestructible. Not too thick, not too thin. Not too big or too small. What do you all use?

2. I want this mug to go with my Carry On, Warriors books.

3. A notekeeping system. I take notes and excerpts from every book I read. So I have piles of 4x6 pages of notes. If I ever wanted to find anything, I’d have to remember the book and about when I read it. I’d like them transcribed into a cross-referenced database, but even writing that took too much out of me.

4. A journal practice that would be painless. I want to keep a journal, but it’s just too intimidating.

5. Science & Health on CD for times when it’s too hard to read it.

6. A job in which I get paid to read. I currently work one in which I get paid to buy books. I figure I’m halfway there!

7. The ability to read and understand Shakespeare.

8. The ability memorize poems and book passages.

9. Magic shelves that always have room for one more book.

10. More time to read.

  1. Personally, I just tend to turn down pages, but if you Google "blood bookmark" you get some interesting result that make it look like blood is oozing out of your books.
    Here is my list.

    1. I suppose magic shelves would mean I'd need a magic house! I keep thinking of that scene in Bruce Almighty where Bruce opens God's file cabinet and the drawer keeps coming and coming and coming... I imagine our shelves would have to be like that! :)
