Book Bliss

This week was my and Mr TR's anniversary, so we braved the traffic-clogged Olympic roads of London and headed to the South Bank, the scene of the crime a few years ago. As we entered the Royal Festival Hall on our way to dinner at Skylon, a wondrous sight greeted us.

A book labyrinth! Does it get any better?

Corridor upon corridor of books, some stacked way over my head.

One of the passages. 

Books! Books! Everywhere, books!

Sheer heaven.

I made it out! Starving and slightly stunned by the book Nirvana.

My friends, if only real life could be as good. Have a great weekend, everyone!

  11. Oh, I don't know which looks more amazing - the book labyrinth, you or your bump! I'm close to blubbing here, can't wait to see you soon!

    How cool is that - kinda scares me in my heels though. One trip and the whole lot would come down!

  26. Happy Anniversary! Now I'm thinking if print books are going to die out, how could you ever get such a thrill with ebooks? Hmm? Maybe make a computer game like this? Ebook Maze?
