Fantasy Library

I saw this on Twitter this morning (thanks to @readandbreathe, follow me @rebf):

In celebration of National Library Week (beginning April 12), author Laurie R. King is offering three spectacular prizes – two go to you, one goes to a library of your choice – in return for your library fantasy. Not a fantasy involving a library, but your fantasy library, your dream library, your “I never want to leave this spot/couch/chair/bear skin rug surrounded by these tall/short/stacks of books” library. Maybe you work in a library and want to redesign it. Maybe you already have your dream library in your home and want to describe it. Or maybe, like me, you constantly search for pictures of libraries online (visit here and here for some of my posts on this, and visit HERE for some truly stupendous libraries), and so now have countless images from which to pick and choose to make up the library of your dreams.

Whatever the case may be, head on over here to read Laurie’s offer, and then submit. And if you want to post your submission here, too, that would be great.

I promise to post mine (as soon as I’ve written it).

Better hurry, you only have until April 9th to get this done.

  1. What a wonderful idea. Our city is meant to be creating a library to wow all ( http://www.birmingham.gov.uk/libraryofbirmingham ) but there's lots of fear that books are going to end up taking a back seat and instead it's going to be all about creating a public space… Hmm. not at all sure about that. However a real and very wonderful library that can hardly be bettered even in my dreams and which I did get to do a lot of reading in is the British Library. Not everyone loves it from the outside, but it really is one of the most magical places I've ever spent time ( http://www.bl.uk/ )

  2. How exciting! I've never seen a library take shape before, though I have a friend whose husband is a library architect – one of the coolest jobs in the world, I think. I hope the books end up receiving just as much attention as the structure. In searching for British Library photographs, I came across this post about an exhibit hosted there that I would LOVE to see: http://informationatorium.com/2010/02/10/images-of-the-19th-century-at-the-british-library/

. . .
Gorgeous illustrations pop with foil pieces that highlight the words of this simple book, perfect for even the youngest reader. The sweetly lyrical text leads the reader from one - a tree - to many - the forest - and beyond, with each turn of the page showing more and more complex scenes through fall, winter, spring, summer, country, city, morning, and night, until we reach the end where the whole world is shining. I immediately wanted to read it again. For all ages, but especially 1-3-year-olds.

DARK IN DEATH by JD ROBB

Does not disappoint! Another solid read in the In Death series by JD Robb. I've been reading this series since 2013, since before she came out as Nora Roberts, and I keep expecting the next book and then the next book and then the next book to dip in terms of quality of style and content and originality, but it just doesn't (thank goodness!). In #46, Dark in Death, JD ROBB almost makes a play on her own life in ways, as Eve is after a murderer who finds inspiration in a specific author's murder mysteries. Robb literally pays homage to the master of the meta, Hitchcock, with mentions of Psycho and Dial M for Murder, and I'm pretty sure the author she describes is modeled after Robb herself (physically). The plot is pretty tight and focused, but we still get glimpses of Peabody & McNab; Leonardo, Mavis, & Bella; Somerset is still off on holiday; and there is just a peek at the growing romantic interest in Nadine's life, as well as a preview of Nadine's next best-seller based on Eve's police work. I'm looking forward to a future book of Robb's that I'm sure will go into further detail either about Nadine's upcoming Oscar nomination for the first book/movie or the publication and what I'm sure will be subsequent movie of the second book. Enjoy! Weekend road trip, book 1! One of my favorite murder mystery series by the prolific JD Robb aka Nora Roberts. I discovered NAKED IN DEATH (#1) in 2003 and have been reading it ever since. So excited to see what adventure happens in #46! Pub date: January 2018
