A Book Geek’s Paradise

Oh my god, you guys. I never had any desire to go to Buenos Aires until right this minute. And now I will surely drop right over and die if I don’t get there soon. Or maybe just throw a tantrum. Because, seriously, have you seen this?

That? That magnificent thing right there? That is a bookstore. I mean, I would move into my local Borders if I could, and get totally overwhelmed with book geekery when I am set loose in my local independent bookstore. But even the two of them together would pale in comparison to this. I saw it on boingboing, where it is explained that this awesome bibliomecca used to be a movie theater. I was actually thinking it looked like a church. But maybe that’s just because I think being there would be like my own personal religious experience.

Probably the only thing stopping me from booking a ticket right now is that I’m guessing the books are all in Spanish. Which I don’t speak. Yet.
