Book Blogger Hop is a fun meme hosted by Crazy For Books. Enter your link and go hop around other blogs that are out there, ready to be discovered!

I've finished a book and started another! That is such a great thing considering how bad I've been at reading lately. I think that I will finally go back to reading as I used to!

"What is the one bookish thing you would love to have, no matter the cost?"

I would want a library.More specifically a library like the one in the Beauty and and the Beast. I would be so happy if I could ever have one like that!!

If you have, or would have a daughter, what book would you want your daughter to read?

I don't have a daughter and don't plan to have one for a while, but I do have a sister. I'm actaully planning on making her read the Harry Potter series. Other than that I would like it if she read any good book. I guess the same goes for if I ever have a daughter.

  1. Just hopping by on follow friday :)
    Everyone should read Harry Potter!

  2. Hopping through. Definitely the Harry Potter series. Although I might encourage them to wait (or re-read it) when they're older b/c they'll understand much more.

  3. Just hoppin' on by! <3 I'm an old follower.

    OMG YES. YES YES YES. I love you for mentioning the library in Beauty and the Beast. I'd kill (numerous people! :P) for that library! You, my friend, have AWESOME taste.

  6. The library in Beauty and the Beast is lust worthy.

    Happy weekend. My bookish wish involves a remodel. Here's what I'd do if I had the time and money.

  7. Following the mechanical bunny around...

    Anything bookish... A library at my fingertips at all times. Luckily I have my Nook :D

    A book to recommend to my figurative girl, Twenty Boy Summer & Speak!!

  13. Hopping by!

    Seems like almost everyone wants a library (or to fix their current library). Me included.

    I'm a new follower on twitter. You can see my blog (and my answer) here: http://booksfromtheaddict.wordpress.com

  14. Am now a follower. Feel free to visit/follow me here: http://misspageturnerscityofbooks.blogspot.com/2010/10/follow-friday-4.html

    I would LOOOOOVE to have a library like the Beast and Belle!:)

  15. A library with a rolling ladder actually sounds pretty awesome.
    I know this makes me sound crazy, but I'm actually trying to super-trim down the size of my book collection. I work at a library, so I have constant access to great books there.
    Harry Potter has been my bread and butter for many years. :)

  16. Looks like we have our eyes set on the same library ;) New follower!

  17. Harry Potter is on my list too... I think I wouldn't let her watch any of the movies until she read them either.

    ... and a library like in Beauty and the Beast... HECK YES!
