I love it. I'd love to spend, nay, invest, a month in the New York Public Library, or, The Library of Congress, if only those were not in New York and Washington, D.C.!

That's a nice idea.Or a book store filled with all your favorite books and even some books that you didn't know existed that could make you a better person after reading them.That Would be Heaven.

The two are unrelated, as we are learnining, even a library can be hell if it has been perverted by those who would censor it...

This would be paradise for me. I'd also need a comfy seat, something to put my feet up on and a crispy apple. Oh, and others with whom to discuss the books. Ahhhh

I picture paradise as all knowledge already recieved. By that I mean all knowledge of EVERYTHING in the Multiverse. But for that to be paradise, everything important would already have happened and there would be nothing left to worry about.
