Booking Through Thursday: Spend, Spend, Spend!


Booking Through Thursday time again:

Yesterday, April 15th, was Tax Day in the U.S., which means lots of lucky people will get refunds of over-paid taxes.

Whether you’re one of them or not, what would you spend an unexpected windfall on? Say … $50? How about $500?

(And, this is a reading meme, so by rights the answer should be book-related, but hey, feel free to go wild and splurge on anything you like.)

Oh dear mine probably are very predictably book related! If it was $5o then I would most likely buy some books on my wish list which seems to get bigger everyday! If it was $500 then I would fulfill my dream of turning one of our sitting rooms into a library. The front sitting room of our house has a big bay window and a wood-burning fire place and it is the room we like to sit in and read. There is a really large wall at the back of the room which I would love to put shelves up and fill that wall with books! Neither myself or my partner are that brilliant at DIY so I would use the $500 to pay a carpenter to make us some fitted shelves and there would probably be some money left over for a new book or two!

With a fire-place and a big bay window, your sitting room sounds like a perfect reading room. I'm so jealous! It wouldn't take much to finish it up ;-)

Dot said...

thekoolaidmom- I know, I would love to fill the wall with shelves of books! I would probably end up spending all day in there then!

Ohh -- I am so jealous, I would love a library in my apartment.

Melissa - Shhh I'm Reading said...

I would love a library in my house too!

Marie said...

built in bookshelves are the BEST! :-) I bought my house because of the number of built ins it has. love it! :-)

Shelving is the bibliophile lust object of the day it appears. Thank goodness for IKEA in the event that windfall fails to materialize.

I have lived in a one bedroom apartment for 13yrs now with the intention of using the bedroom as a library/artist's studio (I sleep in the living room). But, what has it been for 13yrs? A storage room! Someday I'll get it together! In the meantime I'm living in a one bedroom as if it's a studio apartment. sad...
