Library book

Newish blogger (and editor of the TLS and knight of the realm) Peter Stothard got Candida Höfer's Libraries for Christmas; "a book of photographs showing nothing but bindings, shelves and desks from different libraries around the world". Lucky him. Luckier still are the people who are able to use the libraries on show. Floor to ceiling shelves of books! Take a photograph of the library I have to use - grateful though I am for its small mercies - and you'd struggle to find an angle with one flamin' book in sight.
