    The amazing thing here is that the books have overtaken the walls to become architecture themselves. It’s like the books are holding the ceiling up!

    They remind me of a used bookstore that used to be in Calgary; a shop attached to an old house behind it, with bookshelves lining the halls, and in every room around the walls with more in the middle, and you’d go up some stairs into a slant-roofed attic for the children’s books, and downstairs to the basement with more rooms and odd crannies full of books. Ah, sweet memories.
