  1. In Dutch there is something called 'minibieb' which I read is called internationally 'little free library'. This means that people, in front of their house (usually), place a shelf or shelves with books that you can borrow or take, and you can also bring books there for other people to read. I read this morning there is one now in the area nearby which I live, so thought I would take a look some time, maybe bring some books of my own there that I don't want to keep. I was wondering if anyone has ever been to one? They look pretty cute, from photos.
  2. Your Ultimate Dream Library

    What would your own dream library look like? I don't mean a massive government run building, I mean one in your dream house. What kind of book cases would you have, what objects would be in the room (and what kind of books would you hope to have in there)? Mine would be in a large rectangular room, plastered white with some dark wooden beams across the ceiling. The floor would be wooden, parket (like in my room). There would be book cases on three of the walls, with the fourth wall, opposite of the door, having windows and radiators (looking out onto the garden). The book cases would be made out of dark wood. There would also be smaller standalone book cases in the middle of the room, like in a library where you can pick books from both sides. In the centre of the room I would have a Persian carpet and a sofa with a blanket. I would also place a desk somewhere, with a comfy chair and writing equipment. I would have lots of books in this room, singlerowed in the book cases. I would have my collection in there (minus the ones I'm not interested in keeping / reading), as well as books from my wishlist, new (or older) books to come out by authors I like or own other books of, and more books that I might yet discover in future (in the genres I'm interested in). All the books would be in smaller paperbacks (where available), great condition (of course I'd read the books but no strangers before me unless it's unavailable new). I would also love to own some first or early editions of some classics, such as Jane Eyre or editions of medieval books (with their pretty illustrations). I would also own a Kindle with many books bought on my account so I can read while travelling. That's all I can think of for now. It's highly unlikely I'll ever have my dream library, but it's nice to think about sometimes. What does your dream library look like?
