While browsing the web recently looking at other book blogs, I came across a now redundant site, The Nonist. This site wasn’t a book blog but it’s author had written a post called “Hot Library Smut” which talked about a book called Libraries by Candida Höfer. This book is full of beautiful photographs of libraries from all over the world.
“It’s like porn for book nerds. Seriously. They are gorgeous photos, nearly all without visitors and just begging to be entered. (ha. sorry.)” – The Nonist.
This got me thinking….. pictures of beautiful libraries, second-hand books stores or shelves full of gorgeous books IS like porn for book lovers. I love looking at pictures of all of these things.
So, I decided to start a new feature. Here I will post photos of libraries and second-hand book stores that I just love the look of. Not only that, but I would LOVE to feature pictures of my readers home libraries! I would love to see where you keep your books!
If you would like to participate then please leave me a message or email me some pictures of your library and I will feature them in the near future. Or, if there is a library or bookstore that you particularly love then please point me in the right direction.
For now though, here is a picture of the George Peabody Library, Baltimore, Maryland, USA. Isn’t she grand?
