Sitting here wishing I could win the lottery and open up my own wee bookshop…a girl can but dream! It got me thinking about bucket lists and thought I would create my own #BookBucketList (not just about the books I want to read though!)
#1 Own my own bookshop – I even have a name for it (but I’m not telling!) and have the interior designed, the events planned and what it will achieve – now all I need is the money 🙂
#2 Be a Bookseller for a day (in the absence of the above!) For a while I bombarded bookstores with tweets begging them to allow me to work FREE OF CHARGE for just one day – just for the buzz! So if anyone can get me a wee day in a book shop then I’ll love you forever!
#3 Visit all the book shops on this list (and so many more!) (I am visiting Barter Books in August though!) http://www.anglotopia.net/british-travel/ten-coolest-bookshops-britain/
#4 Have my own library in my house, not just some random shelves – but a whole room devoted to my books and comfy reading spots!
#5 Do one of the Dublin literary tours (one of the ones involving a pub crawl!)
#6 Attend #TBConFB Birthday party and meet the rest of our crazy admin team!
#7 Attend every Crimebook festival in the UK (This year I’m going to Harrogate and Bloody Scotland)
#8 Have my picture taken with Lin Anderson and Val McDermid – Queens of Scottish fiction!
#9 A night out with my favourite Scottish crime writers – you all know who you are guys!
#10 Meet up with the crazy #BlogSquad especially my #Twinnie #CrimeBookJunkie
It’s not much to ask is it!
