Road Trip Wednesday

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and we  answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.


Today's Topic: If you were made supreme ruler of the publishing world, what would be your first ruling?

Muahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!  The thought of being supreme ruler of anything sends vibrations of excitement through me.


I like to be the boss.  Why do you think I write?  When I write I get to play supreme ruler of the universe!  This job is right up my alley.


But supreme ruler of the publishing world?  Oh boy.  What wouldn't I do?!

First, I'd create the biggest library in THE WHOLE WORLD.

And I'd sit in the middle of it in a squishy armchair and read.

I'd hold story time for young and old alike, and we'd talk about the books we read and the meanings behind the words.


Hmm...maybe I should have been a Lit. teacher.


Does it have to do with publishing?  Meh, not really.  Does it sound AWESOME anyway?  YEP!




control, alt de feet ya i win

What about you guys?  What would you do as your first ruling of supreme ruler of the publishing world?

I think I would live in your library. :)

Holly I might fight you for that chair.

Susan said...

YES. I want you to control the world. I'd be your minion and help you spread library-magic all over the world.

Awesome answer.

Holly Dodson said...

Bring it Alicia. lol

Susan- Library magic! YES! The world would be a much happier and sparklier place (and not Cullen sparkly) if I were supreme ruler. :D

Definitely install a B&B in the library so we can all come to visit!!! Great idea, I love it!

Kate Hart said...

Good point, re. writing essentially making us all evil overlords to begin with.

Erinn said...

There's a pretty awesome Doctor Who episode where there's a whole planet that's a library. It was awesome.

Jennifer Hoffine said...

Sounds like you'd be the most envied ruler in the world, at least by me, anyway.

Sarah Nicolas said...

hahahaha! oh gosh, I love your world. i want to live there :-)

Kirsten Hubbard said...

lol -- I opened up your comments to ask if I could live in your pubworld, and I see that everyone else already said the same thing!

Michelle Schusterman said...

yeah, count me in!

Leila Austin said...

*echoes everyone else*

If a library like that existed, I would probably never leave :-)

Holly Dodson said...

Ha, I love it. We're going to have a whole town in my library!! Come one, come all!
