Book Lovers Retreat

with 12 comments


I went to type Book Lover’s Treat first, and then laughed – because it is!  A real treat for those of us who like to curl up with a good novel or three. This is the “Book Lover’s Retreat” by Newchurch and it’s currently at the ON9 Event.


The entire set has 3 versions – the Retreat itself, a decorated Retreat and a Retreat with décor and foliage.  This makes it very easy to rez – just choose the one you want.  The decorated version has a Land Impact of 37 which includes everything you see in the picture and if you add the foliage, it’s a further 14 Land Impact which is not bad, considering what you get.



One of the great things about this set is the customisation that is possible.   You may resize and edit the retreat, and unlink and re-link pieces as needed, but please note the following as you edit this piece:-

1. Always keep an unedited copy, in case something goes wrong!
2. Close the blinds before resizing.
3. Reset all the scripts after resizing.
4. You may tint any of the parts to better fit your own colour schemes.
5. After resizing, you will likely need to adjust the positions of the animations.
6. You may remove any or all of the books, plants or other décor parts, or add new ones.


Brilliant!  I want one of these in real life with a “Don’t Disturb for at least a Day upon pain of Death” notice firmly nailed to the boards, although I doubt if anyone would read it 🙂



Cheers, m’dears…  and remember to don your sun tan cream 🙂

  2. Loving the books my friend!

  3. I need this! I love reading and to be surrounded by books in a peaceful place looks simply divine! Two things I have to have with me in SL,, like I do in RL, is a book to read and a cup of coffee or tea. You’ve made this little retreat irresistible!
