      I want a library so bad,It has always been a dream of mine to have a hidden room bursting with books from floor to ceiling. So many books that they barely fit, so that they have to be stacked haphazardly all over the place. In this room I imagine there to be one large super comfy chair and a crackling fire. The room would be mine and mine only… it would be my little secret.

      Shakespeare & Company bookstore in Paris, France. I would model a room in my home to look like this store so it could be a library.

      Set in the heart of Paris on the left bank opposite Notre-Dame Cathedral is Shakespeare and Company, established by George Whitman in 1951 as a library and bookstore. It is situated in the Latin Quarter which for centuries has been the center of Parisian creativity and intellectual life. For browsers not as impressed by architecture as they are by the beauty of books upon books in narrow hallways — not to mention a place to nap, this is it.
