In library paradise

16 Nov

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

You know the library in Disney’s Beauty and the Beast?  Yeah, that’s heaven to me.  I’ve always dreamed of living in a house just big enough for a proper library room.  A room filled floor to ceiling with bookcases, a comfy leather chair with ottoman, a small side table with reading lamp (just big enough for a cup of tea), and possibly a fireplace. That is heaven to me. I’ve been thinking about that a lot lately.  I have an iPad.  I am trying to read more digital books (save space and for travel purposes), and yet I keep going back to the old physical library.  I still want that room.  I fear that the old libraries of the past will slowly disappear in our newly digital world.  I don’t want to lose that comfort, that little piece of paradise in our chaotic lives.
