The Library, by Sarah Stewart

The Library is about a girl that loves to read and doesn’t do anything else.  She grows up and buys a house and fills it with books.  Then one day she can’t fit any more books in the house.  So she donates the house and all the books to make a library and moves into a little place with a friend.  They drink tea and read books.

I want to be her when I grow up.  Except with Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper.
