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.
A 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.
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.
