Anyone remember these?  Old fashioned card catalogs?  Sure enough, I do.  But then, I am "olden".  :-)

Happily, I am a Book Lover.  And I'm happy to celebrate today.

Of course, who wouldn't be thrilled to visit any one of these pictured libraries????

Who could remain not a book lover, when visiting in these???  Happy sigh...

In '99 we spent 8 wonderful days in Paris.  My only regret, is not going into...

"Shakespeare And Company."

 We walked by, and did not enter.   Because  I was in a hurry to get to...

"Darius'" church, from "Highlander, The Series"...  Which I did go into, though... 

"From the first season onward, the 13th century Church of St. Julien le Pauvre in Paris was a shooting location for Highlander: the Series, which ran for six seasons.......... Located on the Left Bank of the Seine in the Latin Quarter, St. Julien sits across the river from Notre Dame in a little park called the Square René Viviani.........The church made its television debut in the pivotal Season One episode Band of Brothers, which also introduced Duncan MacLeod's friend and mentor Darius, a 2000-year-old Immortal priest with an unusual past."

Anyone?

Anyone?

I am in love with the libraries you shared, the books and the green leather couches!

And card catalogues! I happily spent many hours with those. I wish I would have one (or a few) in my home now. I do own enough books to justify one.

I think you have another reason to revisit Paris.

I don't find much time to read, but do enjoy a good book once in awhile. When I was a senior in high school, I worked in the school Library and yes spent much time with the card catalogs. I guess that makes me "olden" also.

My local library still has been using the old card catalog. (We have a woodstove to heat with too) Sadly this year they voted to put the catalog online. Oh well, modern times!
