I left my heart in the library

Uncategorized January 25, 2016

When I was a kid I had this weird fantasy where I wanted to be buried next to my whole library. I guess I was studying the Ancient Egypt civilization and thought that my most valuable possessions where my books. They were the only thing I needed for the afterlife.

This brilliant video by Luís Azevedo founder of Beyond the Frame and The A to Z Review reminds us through a collection of memorable bookish films that the beauty of books resides also in the places where we find them. Libraries and bookstores are here portrayed as whimsical temples or second homes, full of aura and adventure. Definitely, they are the most wonderful places on Earth.
