What is Your Bookworm Utopia Like?

I believe deep down everyone has always wanted a utopia to live in. Void of any form of social, economic, political and religious issues, the idea of a perfect society would always consider the greater good.

With so much of our history plagued with conflict, documented to the most minute detail, aren’t we close enough to having experienced the worse of mankind? Couldn’t we use this knowledge to create a world that would only promote growth and peace instead of death and war?

What if we let the readers of this world dictate the values of society and force everyone to yield to their most sincere and profound desires?

What would a bookworm’s utopia be like?


Eliminate all price tags on all books!

Sure, there are libraries to help our wallets, but what if every single book was free?ย  You’d help reduce the amount of stress and rage accumulated within every person by a good 99% hence making it so much less likely for anyone to throw a random fit on a random person for no reason! Worldwide peace? Check! Oh, and maybe it’ll come with a lot of problems related to the economy and to our limited resources, but who cares! ๐Ÿ˜€

Give readers unlimited space for their book collection and the freedom to own as many books as they want!

The possibility to have our own personal collection? All we need is more room!ย Dig deeper! Build higher! Replace all the green space for extended housing units! The possibilities are endless, and the end goal is the same! More space for bookworms to store their collection! Everything we can find out there can also be found in books, so why bother with conservation for nostalgic purposes? Let’s satisfy every readers desire for a personal library! Watch as the world’s level of happiness skyrockets! ๐Ÿ˜€

Capture and pamper all authors into writing books forever!

Wouldn’t that just be amazing? Readers will never find themselves not having anymore books by a certain author to read. Their happiness will shine upon our society a new and wonderful ray of peace and quiet! It would surely cost the freedom of authors, but they are going to serve the greater good while having all their basic needs satisfied. Hmm… Almost sounds like slavery, but not exactly. You’re happy. I’m happy. We’re all happy! ๐Ÿ˜€

Capture and eliminate all non-readers!

Do you know how much of a burden they are to readers? From mocking us for our passion for literature to diminishing our informed point of views, they have caused too much harm to far too many to be considered pertinent to our utopia! It’s okay if there are a select few non-readers who have changed the world for the better. What matters is the future, and the future is for bookworms only. We’d have to first cure illiteracy before getting to the culling though. ๐Ÿ˜€

Hmmm… It sure doesn’t seem like everything would be too perfect huuh… Almost sounded like I was only thinking for myself too! Most would probably see this as a dystopia too. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Good thing utopias aren’t real. ๐Ÿ˜€

What would be in your bookworm utopia though? ๐Ÿ˜€

Until next time,

  1. Hey I’m loving your version of Utopia ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ“š
    Give readers unlimited space for their book collection and the freedom to own as many books as they want!…. Well, that would certainly make my home more utopic ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Haha…this was such a fun post!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I agree with The Cozy Pages, I love your version of Utopia as well. I think the one thing I would add is add more time to a day in order to read even more books. Something that I miss a lot as you well know lol๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Other than that: I think we don’t have to change anything! Loved this post!!

  3. Hahahaha! This is brilliant. I am with you about having endless space to store books. I would need a TARDIS just for my books!

    I don’t think I’d eliminate all non-readers. I like spending time persuading them to read. I know it’s futile, but I keep trying. XD If I could add something to this list, it would be to have endless reading time. I like my job, but I would like to work for 4 hours a day, and read for the rest. Someone else can cook, clean, run errands, etc. I just want to read.

    1. How cool would that be! A TARDIS for everyone! ๐Ÿ˜

      Oh nooo! Thatโ€™s a pretty huge and crazy challenge to impose yourself ๐Ÿ˜‚ So many of them are convinced that they canโ€™t get into reading hahahah But yes! Dedicated time just for reading would he heavenly! Especially if it has no incidence on our responsibilities! ๐Ÿ˜‚

  4. Oh I love this post, what a fun idea! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’d LOVE endless space to store my books, NO limit haha, that would be incredible. I’m starting to struggle with space in my small room at the moment hahahaha ๐Ÿ™‚ Lovely post! โค

    1. Hahahah thanks Marie! Tell me about it. Space is a scary concept for readers. We just like to dive into the stories and let it drive our imaginations into giving us a boundless universe that we can revisit whenever we want! But then those books sure do love to take space… Argh! ๐Ÿ˜›

  5. Iโ€™ve got to say your bookworm utopia sounds pretty good (maybe not the โ€˜eliminate all non-readersโ€™ part but everything else for sure). My main thing would be eliminate all price tags on all books. Of course I love reading, but buying books puts a series dent in my budget and theyโ€™re not cheap either are they?
    Great post Lashaan. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค๏ธ

  6. When I was a teenager I made over my closet to bookshelves. I had a walk in and had one small section for clothes and the rest went floor to ceiling shelves. It was like a small reading room! HAhaha anyway your post totally reminded me of that time. I totally laughed out loud at that last one though! Capture and eliminate, lol. I’m not sure what you meant by eliminate but lets cure illiteracy first for sure! I kind want to know the terms for the culling?! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Such a fun post Laashan! ๐Ÿ˜€

    1. Aawwwn that’s sounds amazing! Your own little lair! ๐Ÿ˜› Hahahaha you can let your imagination loose for what “eliminate” could stand for. ๐Ÿ˜€ But, one thing’s for sure! A culling must happen, and the terms will all be based on reading habits! ๐Ÿ˜› Thanks for reading, Dani! โค

  7. This is the perfect dream for any book lover. But be careful what you wish for. If all the non readers were eliminated who would serve us as our minions. If all the authors kept writing, how would we ever finish reading a series? Too many parameters. Sigh.

    1. Hahahahaha well-said! None of these ideas in their absolutes actually work. They have an impact on so many other factors that just make it all near impossible to bring to life. But one can dream. ๐Ÿ˜€

  8. Great post! ๐Ÿ˜ what if, everytime you open a book, time stops and you magically find yourself surrounded by fluffy pillows in a small and quiet library where you can forget everything about the world? ๐Ÿ˜ ooopps maybe I’m going too far but I would love that!!

  9. Bookworm Utopia would be a robot-ran world so human readers can read full time and human writers write to their hearts’ delight, to supplying content. It would become a new world addiction where the consequences would be myopia fir readers and eventual writer’s block, or fatigue, whichever comes first.

  10. Haha! Entertaining and insightful thoughts Lashaan, on your point about capturing and pampering authors – wouldn’t it be great to grant immortality to our favourite writers? I’d love nothing more than to read new works from the likes of Arthur C. Clarke, H.G. Wells and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle!

    Eliminating non-readers – there are people in my workplace I’ve heard mocking the mere notion of devoting time to reading (but can’t live without reality TV). They don’t know what they’re missing!

    1. Hahah thanks Chris! Oh man, thatโ€™s exactly what Iโ€™m talking about! If their imagination and desire to create stories were also immortalized, I think a lot of us would be pretty happy! ๐Ÿ˜ Even if sometimes itโ€™s nice to have new creators shake things up a bit. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

      Yep… Iโ€™ll never understand those people. I guess some people prefer not having to use any mental effort in their activities or something…

  11. Haha I love it! As long as I’m not an author in that world I can get behind it. (kidding).

    Oooh I think a bookish utopia for me would be 2 extra hours in the day that are only for reading. There will be no I want to read a book but I need to clean my kitchen, no I want to read a book but I could watch Sabrina on Netflix instead and no I want to read a book but I fell asleep. The world would fall away for 2 hours of extra book time!

    1. Hahaahh but they get to do what they love the most and not think about anything else that could be remotely important in their lives! ๐Ÿ˜€

      The peace and quiet that would come with that 2 hours of extra book time would be beautiful too!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Gosh, if only there was a scientific way to make the world rotate a bit slower and give us that 26 hours we desperately need! ๐Ÿ˜›

  12. Your utopia sounds more like a dystopia for authors to me but that’s one of the things I always love about the utopia/dystopia thing haha. One thing I would LOVE though is your idea of unlimited space for our books! I definitely want some kind of Narnia bookcase for all of my books.

    1. Hahah! Exactly. ๐Ÿ˜› I actually believe utopias are just as bad as dystopias. But it is fun to sometimes imagine in extremes just to know how insane it actually is at times. ๐Ÿ˜€ Ohhhh! A Narnia bookcase would be unbelievable. It would be the ultimate way for escapism! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  13. I’d definitely write all the time if I were pampered ๐Ÿคฃ
    From bookworm view- mine would include comfy hidden reading niches everywhere. I like to hide, like a cat. Growing up, I had a closet nest, and an outdoor hideyhole for reading, or I’d lock myself in my grandparents’ airstream and nest in the couches.

    1. Hahah pretty glad to get the validation of a writer on that angle. I honestly thought it wouldn’t be a satisfying condition to live in for them. ๐Ÿ˜›

      Ohhh, the possibility of having a 24/7 portal to go in and read in our little comfy nest sounds awesome!!

  14. Obviously, this was posted while I was sick in October. But saw a link from Under the Blanket’s Blog hopping post.

    I must say, Long Live Emperor Lashaan! Because remember, authors aren’t “really” people. They’re authors! and rounding up the non-readers? Genius, pure genius! and think of how clean the earth would be once they’re gone too. You could practically end pollution at the same time ๐Ÿ˜€

    Great post and I’m glad I was able to come back to this…

    1. Well, well then. Glad to hear Norrie’s post has done such a kindness to send you my way!

      Tell me about it! Too crowded on Earth? I think not! With less of those non-readers, we get more room for our books! And even more green space for more books! ๐Ÿ˜€

      I honestly had a feeling you were going to like this one too. ๐Ÿ˜› I channeled my inner-Bookstooge for some of these ideas. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for checking it out.

  15. I’m not sure how I missed this post! Very cool ideas, maybe not realistic, but hey, were dreaming right?? My personal utopia would be to live in a huge old mansion with bookshelves lining every wall of every room, BY MYSELF. Lol. I might let other readers come visit๐Ÿ˜Š

    1. Oh yeh. And dreams could come true if we work hard enough too! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ That personal utopia definitely sounds beautiful to me. In fact, the idea of letting readers visit sounds so friendly too! ๐Ÿ˜€ Some kind of portal to connect with all kinds of readers might actually be interesting. Although I fear for the personality of some readers too… Hmmm… ๐Ÿ˜›
