Every little girl who loved to read and grew up in the late 80s/early 90s had one common dream: to one day have a Beauty and the Beast Library of her own.

The best self-present ever: a monument to all that is literary, complete with rolling ladders, stair cases, wall-to-wall books, and big comfy reading chairs. Also with a bay window and cushion, if I feel like reading by a scenic view.

I am no exception.

I’ve already described my ideal day to many as one where I can settle down with a good book, a cup of tea (or hot chocolate, depending on my preference that day), and read. Usually this would happen at a bookstore (I prefer a local bookstore or Barnes and Noble; what can I say, I’m a sucker for new books), but it’d be much more convenient to have my own library. I guess these “reading days” have been a long tradition for me. My dad and I used to spend a good 5+ hours at B&N or the library when I was little; when I was a bit older I’d spend afternoons reading underneath the skylight in my uncle’s attic; and last summer, I’d spend a couple hours with Albert and Anna at Kramer’s or our apartment in DC. Unfortunately, with school going on I usually lose the time/energy to read for pleasure. On the bright side: I’m beginning to enjoy my school books more and more (in fact, some of them are a pleasure to read). Still not the same though.

I guess  B&N and Morrison Library will do for now. But someday, I’ll have that library. Any donations to this cause are welcome. 🙂

I’ve been toying with the idea for a couple of months, so why not? Wouldn’t it be cool to have “Trust-buster” under your name on a business card?

Someday, I too may have the chance to do this.

This could be me one day.

Plus, then I could sleep at night knowing that I helped make the playing field just a little bit more fair.

Also, then I could fulfill my life ambition to become a “bringer of justice,” a goal that Katherine always makes fun of.
