Friday Night Book Porn!!!

Book porn: (n) Photographs and descriptions that exploit the nerd's natural lust for the physical beauty of reading material. Such material is deemed highly dangerous to one's sanity . People under the influence have been known to max out their library cards, spend their food money on paperbacks and exhaust their friends and loved ones with "wish lists" .

If someone you love suffers from book porn addiction, know that there is no cure for it.

Just give them what they want.
This week's steamy literature photo was sent to me via Stumbleupon by Rebecca Taylor of Lost in Books. According to the website this is the Studienzentrum der Anna-Amalia-Bibliothek in Weimar. That's German for "I could get arrested for showing you this."

I love the lines in the photograph: the way the very modern chairs mimic the architecture of the room, the way the architecture of the room mimics the spine of a book. Beautiful. And the soft browns are a nice contrast to the stark black. I could go there! Arrest me!
