Good wishes all around!

To Shog and other atheists this season . . .

Happy rational winter! For those of you who live in non-wintry climes, may I wish you a more general, but no less heartfelt, "happy rationality!" Oh, and happy Agnostica, too!

Please feel free to use the icon with credit to redstapler (for the quotation) and tzikeh (for the creation).

In keeping with rational wishes, I give you the Stockholm Public Library—because every holiday season is better with library porn!



Mom and I got our Christmas lights up last night and I'm feeling incredibly festive, so I leave you with good wishes all around: Happy Agnostica! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Kwanzaa! Happy Winter Solstice! Merry Christmas!

Happy holidays, however you celebrate! May you have a peaceful season. :D

There is scaffolding, and there are bridges to the shelves at the top. It would probably not be a good library for anyone afraid of heights. *meeps* (I'd go, anyway, darn it!)

I think I'd need a harness. ;)

And now I'm thinking it would be nice to see the Library of Congress again soon. *drools over books*

LIBRARY PORN!!!

I'm surprised that barrier is not higher to stop people flinging themselves at the giant wall of books omg.

A very merry non-denominational December to you, too! Or, indeed, merry Christmas, if that's what you're celebrating.

I'm in love that library, and I don't even "know" it. ;)

Do you know title and author? Some time ago I read about that book of photos of libraries, but can't track it down; my google-fu today is abysmal.

You're welcome!

I'd love to know the title of that book on libraries, too, if you know it. Library porn coffee table book FTW!

A wonderful design, that library, but I fear someone else would have to get my books for me. I clicked through, and it became so much clearer how much empty space there is beside/below those ladders, and are those glass walkways at the top? (eep! save me) or are they merely braces? Yes, you said to Mia, "bridges to the shelves at the top." OMFG, I'd never survive.

Love library porn!

And a joyful season to you!

I don't think that there is any glass, which freaks me out, too, but perhaps after a shot of something, I'd be able to manage the walkways. The books call to me. *g*

Happy holidays!
