Once I get my own place, I'd love to have my own personal library. It's amazing how cozy and atmospheric some libraries can be.

Well found and very interesting, thank you for sharing. I remember seeing a photo of an old fridge used as a book case, now that's a cool place to put your books.

Very cool but I think they should have had less emphasis on the U.S. and China.

For anyone else who enjoys reading stories in target language to help retain vocabulary by seeing it in context, I came across a new app that looks like it is coming soon. www.readstori.com I hope it is as promising as it looks!! Ciao
