A Children’s Book Guide to Travel by cheapflights via visual.ly: Often set in places that are pure fiction, children need only their imaginations to take them from their bedrooms to the land of make believe. However, for those needing that extra kick, here are some real world places that have inspired the stories that can inspire you. #Infographic #Kids #Travel #Books these are going in my bucket list!!!

Mainly just because I want to pretend I'm Belle. And use that ladder. I love books! MY DREAM ROOM!!!!
Ah, HEAVEN ..floor to ceiling .. would love to have a reading room like this some day
floor to ceiling books, this is a room in my future dream house
Home library with floor to ceiling book shelves and a ladder. I've wanted this since the first time I watched Disney's Beauty and the Beast.
Dream library... floor to ceiling books with rolling ladder on rail. I also know it is a real library because there isn't a lot of sunlight pouring over the books to fade them.
Book Heaven - center of knowledge :) I'd want one of those rolling ladders, Beauty and the Beast style...

Cute Bookmark Idea ~ using the corner of an old envelope
Corner Bookmark: A creative way to re-use old envelopes by cutting the corners to make bookmarks. I don't typically read paper books anymore, but too cute not to repin. Love the "fell asleep here" note.

Love this series of books written as sequels based on the movie with Keira Knightley.
Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One- Pride and Prejudice Continues by Sharon Lathan, http://www.amazon.com/dp/1402215231/ref=cm_sw_r_pi_dp_DCnZrb0HDXW4B
Sharon Lathan presents Mr. Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy, A fascinating portrait of a timeless, consuming love - and the sweetest, most romantic Jane Austen sequel.
Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy" is a novel, a romance, a Regency historical, a family saga, a literary journey filled with humor, joy, and exquisite but tempered sensuality, focusing on the obstacles inherent in all. Nothing like Jane Austen's Book, writing is horrible, and based of the P movie with Kira Knightly. Hate this book.

so true! keep hearing this about the hunger games. i agree that the movie was lacking a bit, but the book is so much more than that!
"Never judge a book by its movie" quote.
never judge a book by its movie. Because The Hunger Games was better as a movie, and Twilight shoulda stayed a book :)
True story. I have read so many books then have seen the movies and been disappointed.
While true...it was the first movies of Harry Potter, LotR, Narnia, and Hunger Games that got me to read the books...

My all time favorite book and movie. In 1936 Margaret Mitchell publishes Gone with the Wind. Three years later it hits the silver screen, starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh.

The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins [Great book! The movie wasn't too bad either!]
The Hunger Games- Favorite book series ever! Can't wait for the movie!
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins...I am halfway through this, but I already know this book is well written and is a book worth reading. I wanted to read it before seeing the movie, which I thought I would never want to see. I was wrong about that!
However, for me, the library would BE the secret room :)

Friday, I'm in Love | A Compilation of Some of the World's Best Hidden Passages Is there anything quite like the thrill of a secret corner, hidden away from the world, with it's entrance in plain sight, but inconspicuous to the unknowing passerby? I'd be elated if I ever had the chance to visit such a nook, or have one in my own home one day.. A reading closet sounds just about right! The closest I've ever come to any such thing is visiting Tate, the 1920's gentlemen's secret bar in G Tower, with a concealed entrance (hint: look for the hat). (Image from Bart Kowalksi) Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised to literally open the wall and step in to this swanky place, modeled after secret speakeasy bars during the 1920's prohibition era. But back on topic. I've especially compiled a list of some of the best secret doorways spotted during my perusal of the the wonderful world of Internetdom for all my readers. 1) Secret passage in a library: Opening up to.. a table set for tea! Divine. A cuppa, anyone? (Source: Simon Brown Photography) 2) Secret panel in wardrobe leading to a Narnia-themed playroom: No, they didn't.. This nine-year-old has got to be one of the luckliest little girls in the world! Her parents actually constructed a wardrobe leading into Narnia for her! Hahahha! The author at io9 suggests sealing up the back panel of the wardrobe as the kid gets old so that she is psychoed into believing that she is completely insane for having imagined stepping through her wardrobe into Narnia as a child, only she did. Hahahah T_T it's a pretty cruel joke, but you gotta admit, it's hilarious.. (Source: io9) 3) Anne Frank's Secret Annex: Possibly the most famous hidden door in history. The movable bookshelf which concealed the entrance to the Secret Annex where Anne Frank hid with her family from the Nazis during WWII. Constructed by Father Voskuijl, the warehouse manager, Anne Frank wrote in her diary on August 21, 1942, “Now our Secret Annex has truly become secret…Mr. Kugler thought it would be better to have a bookcase built in front of the entrance to our hiding place. It swings out on its hinges and opens like a door. Mr. Voskuijl did the carpentry work. (Mr. Voskuijl has been told that the seven of us are in hiding, and he's been most helpful.),” This secret entryway is available for view at its original premise at the Anne Frank Museum at Prinsengracht 263. To mark its 50th anniversary, the museum has created the Secret Annex Online where you can examine the bookcase here. (Source: Anne Frank Museum) 4) The secret door at the library of the St. Florian’s Monastery (Source: David Cuartielles) 5) Secret Entrance to a Hidden Pub at the offices of Steelhead Partners: Taking after-work drinks to a whole new (hidden) level (Source: carimullaney) 6) Secret Sauna in Martha's Vineyard Summer Home: Designed by Robin Pelissier, this secret sauna hideout in the bathroom of Martha's Vineyard Summer Home in Boston wins the prize for a modern twist on the rather dated idea of hidden doors. I have a feeling vacationing here would make a great getaway. (Source: Robin Pelissier) 7) The Home Theater Ticket Booth Hidden Door: Brought to you by the imaginative minds at Creative Building Resources, this vintage ticket booth adds a hidden door to your home theater room by making it look like an old school ticketing both. The front glass panel is cut for the speak through and ticket slot. It even comes with programmable scrolling LED sign built into the top of the frame, wooden inlays and recessed lighting. The interior can be accessed by a full sized cabinet door at the back of the booth. (Source: CBR) 8) One of the secret doors of the Stift Admont library, Austria: Looks absolutely dreamy. I have no idea where the stairs leads, but I sure would like to find out. (Source: Olympia LeTan)
My dream house would have a library with a secret room.
A secret room, behind a wall of many books. A library with a hidden room.
