Hey guys! You are doing great as we all head into Hour 5 and the Twitter as usual is on fire! Stick with it peeps I know you can make it. Currently I am at home with a cuppa and making plans to stick an audio book on so I can run errands and come back and clean the house. If you are on the move how are you making a dent in your stack?
Whilst having a mooch on the internet I was thinking about you guys and if you were not reading at home where would you be? The one place in mind that really stuck out was your local library. As many a bibliophile will probably admit the library can be a sanctuary for peace, quiet and an overall sanctuary surrounded by items that you truly love.
Personally my library is quite unappealing as it is part of a local council building and each time I walk past seems to have less and less books in it. This got me to thinking about travel – on my travel I have found a lot of independent book shops which usually means that clothes get left behind in the effort to fit in those books that I just could not leave behind or I end up paying for extra baggage!
One thing that I have never really considered is visiting libraries whilst travelling, not so much for the borrowing aspect but just to see how libraries elsewhere are holding up. Back to my mooch! I found a list of libraries that are apparently must sees and whittled it down to my 5 favourites as we are in Hour 5 to share with you lovelies.
Have a look a let me know what you think or if you have been to any of them …
The George Peabody Library, Baltimore, Maryland
New York Public Library Reading Room, New York
The British Museum Reading Room, London
A small part of The Bodleian Library, Oxford, England
