Actually, let's put a picture of Belle and that library, just because I still have a fond place in my heart for both. Ah, childhood.
...Sorry, I just got distracted looking at that library. I think I may still be obsessed with it, 15 years later.
Continuing... I've always wanted a library in my house. Only now, I've realized that I (probably) won't live in a castle, so I'll need to make the library of my dreams fit a cool, urban place - as I am a cool, urban girl. Or I plan to be when I grow up.
And then I saw this:
Wowza. I love it. I want to build a fire and read every one of those (assumingly) interested books on the shelves. It may not be a castle, but I feel like I could make do.
