But I loved the library simply because it was a library.
I love libraries. I like reading, but I love libraries.
Being surrounded by books makes me feel safe,
the way some people need trees or mountains around
them to feel secure.
Not me – nature’s not what I cling to.
I cling to books.

I love books too, the way they look, the way they feel, the smell and i love libraries too. I want a whole wall of filled bookcases in my house....almost there hihi, or a room full with a desk in te middle and a comfy chair to read and dream. This one on the picture is looking stunning.
