Day 209: The Perfect Bookstore

If you had to get locked in some place (book store, amusement park, etc) overnight alone, where would you choose to be locked in?

If I could pick a place to be locked into overnight it would probably be a bookstore.This bookstore would be special. It would always have at least one copy left of any book I wanted to read, even the out of print titles. The shelves would low enough so that I could reach all the books easily from my chair, even the top shelves.

The bookstore would have an entire floor devoted to each genre and an elevator instead of stairs to go between them. There would be an endless supply of hot chocolate or warm tea to drink. While browsing the bookstore I would constantly find coupons which be discovered in the morning to add up to the exact amount needed to pay for all the books I would want to take home. Once the books would never get lost, I would never lose my place, and the pages would refuse to dog ear no matter how many tines I read them.

I know books and bookstores like that don’t exist but I can continue to dream. As a friend of mine says,”I reject your reality and substitute my own.” Who knows, maybe someday someone will design a store like that. Hopefully it is not as crooked as the picture in my which sort of resembles the description of Ron’s house from the second Harry Potter book.

  1. I’d be locked in a craft store, with lots of papers, embellishments, glues, glitter and gemstones. I love your idea of finding coupons in your bookstore to cover the cost of any books you want to take home with you. I’d like to borrow that for my craft store, please! Great post.
