"Always read something that will make you look good if you die in the middle of it." (O'Rourke)

I'm not sure if it's an obsession or a fascination, but as long as I can remember I've LOVED books! I love libraries, I love used bookstores, I love spending the day at Barnes-n-Noble... anything to be able to hold a book in my hand. I would love to travel the world and visit these amazing libraries. Anyone want to come???

Real Gabinete Portugues De Leitura Rio De Janeiro, Brazil

Hereford Cathedral Chained Library, Hereford, England
(Rare books were once kept chained to the bookshelf to prevent stealing.)

Handelingenkamer Tweede Kamer Der Staten-Generaal Den Haag, the Hague, Netherlands

St. Florian Monastery-Library, Austria

Poetry Section at Beinecke Library, Yale University
