This week’s topic was “show us your bookcases.” While I do technically own one bookcase, it’s filled with clothes, random knickknacks, spare charging cords for our various electronic devices, and tic tacs because my spouse loves that candy.
In order to stick to the spirit of the prompt, I’m going to tweak it just a little so I can share my dream bookcase with you all.
Many bookcases out there are quite tall. I’m a little shorter than average, so it always makes me a tad nervous to stand on my tiptoes and try to grab a book on the top shelf. This is even more true if the book is oddly shaped or heavier than usual as I have scary thoughts of one of them falling onto my face and scratching my cornea or cracking my glasses. (Yes, my fears are quite specific sometimes. Ha!)
Therefore, my ideal bookcase would be one that I could reach every shelf comfortably.
The thought of it existing in a little nook of a house that might otherwise be hard to make full use of delights me, too.
I love the wooden frame over the doorway of this bookcase. Wood is such a warm and cheerful material. I’d want to have rabbits carved into my frame because they’re my favourite animal.
Ideally, my bookcase and the nook it was placed in would be somewhat larger than this one. I would like to have a soft, comfortable chair in that little room or maybe right outside of it in the hallway or next room as well if I could. It would make such a cozy spot to sit and read.
There you have it. Something like this would be a perfect bookcase to me.
