Welcome to Top Ten Tuesday – a weekly feature hosted by those lovely bookworms over at The Broke and the Bookish. Expect a new top ten list every week!
| Top Ten… Wishes for The Book Genie |
It’s Tuesday again and in this week’s Top Ten we’re asking The Book Genie for ten wishes… which is a lot harder than it sounds! So in no particular order, here are my (rather selfish) wishes:
| 1. |
The Ability to Pause Time
An infinite amount of time to read books?! That’s exactly what I need and would still leave me a world of time to get none bookish things done. On the condition, of course, that I wouldn’t age during the paused periods… I’m pretty sure my TBR list would see me into old age.
| 2. |
Perfect Retention & Recall
Ahh an eidetic memory would certainly come in handy when coming back to reviewing books. And it has wonderful applications for real life too!
| 3. |
A Rabbit Hole into (and out of) Book-Land
A way into and out of the worlds of my favourite books. Better throw immunity to injury, pain and death into the bargain as well – Book-Land can be dangerous!
| 4. |
Infinite Book Shelves
The ultimate space saving wish – a bookshelf which can hold an infinite number of books! No collapses! No avalanches post book retrieval! It’s the dream.
| 5. |
The Perfect Dinner Party
Once a week I can host a dinner party for authors, either living or dead, where I can enjoy their sparkling wit and conversation whilst getting some answers to any burning questions. Of course I’d need a very grand library-dining room cross-over for just such an occasion but I think The Book Genie would understand the necessity in fulfilling this wish.
| 6. |
I Want, I Want… I Get!
Yea, yea but this is totally book related – as soon as I think the words ‘I want this book’, it magically appears in front of me! That’ll save some time… or mostly effort. Pausing time really solves a lot.
| 7. |
My Very Own Wise Old Wizard
My very own Gandalf or Dumbledore – I promise I’ll look after him and comb his beard and I’ll even feed him! But mostly to guide me through life and stop me before I do anything stupid. Also to teach me magic. Yes… mainly that.
| 8. |
Become a Character for a Day
Ahh to be able to jump into the shoes of any character – good or evil – and experience their life for a day! I’m sure it would be highly amusing, terrifying and somewhat disturbing all at the same time.
| 9. |
The Most Beautiful Library… EVER!
I know, I already asked for infinite bookshelves but libraries are awesome. And there’s no reason it can’t contain infinite bookshelves! A win, win I’d say.
| 10. |
Instant Awesome Movies
My favourite books instantly become amazing films? Yes please!
