Reading as a Religious Experience.

by guestofaguest · December 13, 2007

    So many parties tonight, and yet, the only thing I can think about doing is curling up in bed with a good book. 'Tis the season.

    Today's Bloomberg quote: "I've never known any trouble that an hour's reading didn't assuage." --Charles De Secondat (social commentator).

    Well, Mr. De Secondat, I would like to "second that" comment (pun intended). Books on the mind today, I couldn't help but share this adorable library I came across. It's the Selexyz Dominicanen in Maastricht Netherlands. A former 800 year old Dominican church that is now a bookstore, housing the largest number of books in the area..."Whoever said reading was a religious experience was right..."-The Cool Hunter.
