I am a history fan.
But, the main reason this little image caught my attention is actually because I’m a fan of literature. A fan of knowledge. Of books in general, of any sort, shape, subject, or size.
The thought of spending days (weeks, years) browsing and absorbing and immersing within the parchment fabled to exist there… well, that’s about as close as I get to a “dream come true.”

I love this. Funny story: When it was time for my Confirmation in seventh grade I had to pick a name based on the name of a saint. I chose St. Alexander purely because I wanted “Alexandria” to be my middle name. Not because of the saint–because of the library. My little twelve-year-old friends thought I was crazy. :)
That’s an awesome reason to choose a Confirmation name! I love it – thanks for sharing! :)
