Growing Up in the Library.

Susan Orleans writes a personal history about growing up in libraries, and rediscovering them later in life.

I've just realized since I become a PhD student I've been reading only pdfs: articles, etc. 2 months ago, when I come back from my research stay in Amsterdam, I decided to read novels again, and I’m really happy about it.

The best ones for me: Deaf Sentence [La vida en sordina] and The British Museum is Falling Down [La caída del museo británico], by David Lodge.
