Top 10 Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in 2010. It’s a fun way for bloggers all over the Internet to connect and post the things they love about books. This week’s topic explores my top 10 wishes I would want the book genie to grant me. Let’s get started!
1. Unlimited reading time one day of the week.
I would love to be able to just sit down and read for an entire day. Just one day where I have no other commitments other than to enjoy a book that I love.
2. Faster reading abilities.
I am the slowest reader known to man…and I hate that. It takes me much longer to read than those around me, and I would pay money to be able to finish and enjoy books in the blink of an eye.
3. A secret library for my house.
House goals include a hidden library behind a staircase with a ladder that can glide across the room.
4. Unlimited access to Barnes and Noble.
I would never ever steal a book. But if I could just go into Barnes and Nobel under the cover of night and read books for hours on end with access to the Starbucks pastries, I wouldn’t complain.
5. A map of all the amazing book stores in the world.
I’m a huge fan of used bookstores. Last spring break my friend and I took a road trip to my hometown and stopped along the way in Savannah and found an amazing store. They always have the best finds and the greatest stories. I would love to have a map that I could visit throughout my travels.
6. A summary for book series.
By this I mean, I wish book series had the same thing as TV series such as a “What Happened Last Time.” I always wait for a series to be finished before I read it because I always end up forgetting what happened in the previous books and have to re-read them. If I had a highlight reel of the past books that sums up all the important points, I wouldn’t run into these problems.
7. Paperbacks should come out way faster.
Seriously, I’m here waiting for a paperback copy of a book for like two years! What gives? There are two types of people in this world — people who read hardcover books and people who read paperback books, so please, help a sister out.
8. Give me the truth from J.K. Rowling.
I’m a huge fan of Harry Potter, and I’m a huge fan of J.K. Rowling for giving me Harry Potter. Now, I would love to meet her and get the actual truth about the world I grew up loving. She’s released a lot of information within the past couple of years, but I feel like they are publicity ploys to increase popularity of the book and though she may believe in what she is saying, I would just really love to sit down with her and maybe read her notes on the original stories.
9. Please let me be paid for this.
I decided I wanted to be a book editor when I was just beginning to think about college. If I could be paid to tell people I love their books, I would be a happy gal.
10. Grant everyone the ability to read.
So many people in this world don’t have the ability to read due to lack of education or lack of resources. I would love it if everyone in the world were able to read and able to have access to amazing books. I would love to start a foundation one day that donates books to children all over the world.
