I have always imagined paradise to be a kind of library.
~Jorge Luis Borges

I love the Austrian libraries!!!! I'm reading Jorge Luis Borges' Selected Poems, slowly. I've been reading through the translated poems over the past year. It'll probably take another year to get through them. He has an interesting philosophy.

Heidi - they're beautiful, aren't they! So ornate. I don't think I would ever leave because after checking through all the books I would be inspecting all the carving and mural work. It's all quite incredible.
