This has got to be the link of the year for bibliophiles. Oh, the wonders.
And to think how many times we've driven past Melk and had no idea it has this fabulous library! Next time, for sure.

Melk! Home of the fictional Adson von Melk!
Waaaay back in the primitive 80's before the Internet or *anything*, The Name of the Rose was made into a feature film starring Sean Connery, and I saw it with friends in Germany. And I bought the book (in German) and got maybe 30% into it before leaving the damn thing in Spain while on vacation.
Years later, I started it again, and got the same 30% into it before ... I don't remember before what.
And then for many years we have been in Puerto Rico and Europe while our possessions gathered dust in Indiana, but *now*, since we have officially decided to actually live in one place at a time, all of our stuff is here.
So I'm finally catching up on reading from the 80's! Isn't that cool?
(Now if I can work food into this it'll be the quintessential HDTD comment...)
