All Things Books...........

When it comes to books, it is not just the magic under the covers that draws me, it is All Things Books that I love. This month's I spotlight those beautiful, exquisite buildings which preserves the books we love. Every row, every shelf holds it's own magic, where imagination, dreams and happy ending do exist.

I hope you fall in love with these buildings as I have, and I can only hope that we continue to keep the library’s rich history going so that we may enjoy it for many centuries to come.

I remember when I was a very young girl my grand father took me to see some beautiful Medieval illuminated manuscripts at the National Library in Paris (France) ; it was not a part open to the public but he had a friend there and I remember very vividly those beautiful colors and all this gold, it was unbelievable !! it is a vision I will never forget, of course we couldn't touch only look at it but it was enough .. some things remain forever engraved in our memory, even after forty years !

Its the smell of old libraries but of the ones you have pictures of its has to be Monastery Library at San Francisco Monastery and Church in Lima, Peru. It looks like a magical fairy tale or something out of harry potter and I want to be there!!

I agree Kerry, the smell of libraries is marvelous, there's a warm woody smell that adds to the experience. Harry Potter would be proud to have that as the library at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. :)
