La mia biblioteca
I am particularly fond of magical realism, surrealism, speculative fiction, folklore and mythology from all cultures, fairy tales, monsters, the supernatural and anything strange or fortean. And, yes, I really do read my books, all of them eventually. My idea of paradise would be my books, a never-ending cup of coffee, and my kids playing quietly (or, perhaps, reading too) on the other side of the room.

Books I would be delighted to find, should anyone spot a copy.
1.) Any nice hardcovers by Ruth Manning-Sanders. I want to collect her entire set of fairy tale anthologies eventually. So far, I have only one.

I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library. - Jorge Luis Borges

A room without books is like a body without a soul. - Cicero

Someday you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again. - C.S. Lewis

When I get a little money, I buy books. And if there is any left over, I buy food. - Deciderius Erasmus

The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven. - John Milton, Paradise Lost

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy. - Shakespeare

In an utilitarian age, of all other times, it is a matter of grave importance that Fairy tales should be respected. - Charles Dickens

Build yourself a book-nest to forget the world without. - Abraham Cowley

Far more seemly were it for thee to have thy study full of books, than thy purse full of money. - John Lyly

I couldn't live a week without a private library - indeed, I'd part with all my furniture and squat and sleep on the floor before I'd let go of the 1500 or so books I possess.
- H.P. Lovecraft

Stories teach us empathy. They reveal to us ourselves in the skins of others.
-J. Simien

If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.
— C.S. Lewis

When you create stories, you become gods, of tiny, intricate dimensions unto themselves. So many worlds!
-Metatron from Supernatural
