Bookshelf Porn

As a reader of books, I love bookshelves.  I love looking at them, I love putting books in them, I love taking books down to read.  But look at my bookshelf.

20150101-234140-85300100.jpgA mess.  It’s actually a closet with shelves in it, and I have too many books to store them properly.  I need to figure out how to make it look better.

But I don’t want you looking at my bookshelves.  I want you to look at these ones.  BookBub has 21 amazing bookshelves for you to salivate over.  They look wonderful, don’t they?  Well, I’d like to do a poll.  So below, please vote for your favourite on that page (or favourites, I’ll leave this open for multiple choices), then leave a comment talking about why you chose it/them.

Irritating but Awesome Dream

This morning, I had a dream just before waking up.  I can remember those dreams very well.  And since this one was quite unusual, I didn’t forget it.  It was an irritating situation, but it ended in an amazing way.

In the beginning, I was shopping in a supermarket with my family, and I had to pay 17,000 yen.  That’s $170 for you North American inhabitants.  I decided to pay by debit.  In Japan, there is no debit.  Everyone pays by cash or through an electronic prepaid card.  But in my dream, debit was an option.  I was declined.  What was it?  Not enough money in my account?  No, I had plenty in my dream account.  More than enough.  The manager came over and told me there was a problem.  He showed me how much I had in my account (supermarket managers can do that???) and how I haven’t been spending money from that account much at all (the supermarket is part of a bank???).  I explained to him that I was normally using that bank account to save money because I have a young child I need to save for.  He told me that he understood, and printed out a paper for me to read over, so we could clear up this problem.  I touched the paper, and it suddenly folded 90 degrees into the shape of a laptop computer.  A keyboard and a screen materialised on the paper.  Electronic paper!!  It seemed so real, and I was so amazed.  I couldn’t believe that they’ve started using electronic paper in this way.  What was even more amazing is that the paper started showing a video in full colour.

And then I woke up.  I was kind of disappointed.  I wanted that paper computer to be real.  But with the way technology is advancing, it’s quite possible it could soon.

Have you ever had a dream that was actually possible and impressed you a lot?  Leave a comment.
