Ten Wishes We'd Ask The Book Genie To Grant Us

For future Top Ten Tuesday topics & info on how to participate, click here!


Bridget Wishes...

1. Dear Book Genie -- Is it cheating to ask for unlimited access to all books ever? Because that.

2. Dear Book Genie -- Please tell mass market paperback producers to stop making their books too tall and narrow. They are impossible to hold open and look dumb. There's a reason photo sizes, post cards, and index cards come in 4x6 and 5x7, but not 4x7.

3. Dear Book Genie -- Please remind all movie producers who are making movies from books we love that *real* fans of these books would be totally willing to sit through a 6+ hour movie if it means getting all the details right. And by right, we mean consistent with the book. That means no extra love stories to get the Nicholas Sparks crowd, no casting white actors in roles meant for characters who aren't white, and no changing significant plot points.



Jamie Wishes...

4. Dear Book Genie -- Can you please produce a list of all the books I've read as a child and teen... for reference. You see, I was pre-Internet and NEVER HAD A HANDY WAY LIKE GOODREADS TO KEEP TRACK OF THIS.

5. Dear Book Genie -- I'd like to have the rest of the Throne of Glass series, PLEASE AND THANK YOU. I CANNOT WAIT.

6. Dear Book Genie -- Can you make me read faster AND still absorb/enjoy it all so well?? I'd like to get through my MASSIVE TBR LIST more quickly!!




Lauren Wishes...

7. Dear Book Genie -- Can you please let me meet Margaret Atwood before I die? And maybe Neil Gaiman... and Patrick Ness... and Deborah Harkness...

8. Dear Book Genie -- Can you please build me more bookshelves? I'll gladly pay for them, but putting them together just plain sucks.

9. Dear Book Genie -- Can you convince my boyfriend to read more books instead of exclusively graphic novels and the Game of Thrones series? THERE ARE SO MANY BOOKS HE WOULD LOVE.

10. Dear Book Genie -- Lastly, please dear sweet book genie... I ask that you grant all book nerds their wishes. Give books to children who read newspapers and want ads because their parents can't afford books, give a teenager who might just need the right book in their hands that may change their life forever, or even just give that one book to comfort an old lady sitting in a nursing home so she can have a smile for the day.


What would you ask the Book Genie for?

  2. I love your list and thanks for asking something for me on your list...for all book nerds!

    BTW- Did you guys know your page has been hijacked? It only happens when I am on your page and never any other time or pages: If I go to Broke and Bookish and puase for a period of time, the page switches to one of two pages. One is a MySpace Page and the other is Garden Supply Page. Weird. I hope this is helpful and you can figure out if there is something to be done.

  5. All the books you read as a child/teen is PERFECT. I need this as well. I'm mad at my child self for not having noted all of that, even though it's not like GR existed but STILL.

  6. I've already had #4 granted for me, one of the benefits of homeschooling and being required to keep a booklist every year!

  10. Oh, Lauren, I love your last one. So sweet. Also, I love the idea of a list of the books you read as a child. The Internet didn't become a household thing until I was in college. I'd love to know all the books I read before then.

  12. A wish 11 from me to you: no spammers!!
    Lauren you made me laugh out loud about the bf + books wish. My husband is LITERALLY the same, and he's even given up on Game of Thrones! I would PAY him to read Ready Player One, but he just doesn't feel like it...
    And then 10 made me AW out loud. Very nice sentiment!!

  13. I love this topic!

    Bridget--I agree on the movie wish! I would totally watch ridiculously long movies if the details are right (but only if they are true to the book, not like the WAY too long and inaccurate Hobbit movie trilogy).

    Jamie--I so agree on the list of all books I have read pre-goodreads. I wish I could remember them all!

    Lauren--I always need more bookshelves too. And love your last wish, well said!

  18. Am Malvina Alexei. I feel so joyful today because of the help Doctor Okpamen has rendered to me for getting my Husband back with his spell. I have been married for 6 years and it has been so terrible because my husband was cheating on me and was seeking for a divorce. But when i came across Doctor Okpamen website on the internet posted by a lady, i decided to get in touch with him and i explained my situation to him and then seek his help but to my greatest surprise he told me that he will help me with my case for there is no problem without a solution. Here i am celebrating because my Husband is back home and am really enjoying my marriage, what a great celebration. i will keep on testifying on the internet because Doctor Okpamen is truly a real spell caster. Why not contact Doctor Okpamen now if you are facing any challenges in your relationship life.
