(someone in a squirrel costume pretending to be me coming home from the ilbrary/bookstore)
it is national book month after all –
“with freedom, flowers, books and the moon, who could not be perfectly happy?”
The library in Puebla, Mexico has grown from 5,000 volumes in 1646 to more than 40,000 volumes now,
the majority of which date from before Mexico’s independence and is the oldest in the Americas.
“i cannot remember the books i’ve read any more than the meals i have eaten; even so, they have made me.”
