  1. “Oh, the picture brought back so many memories,” she gushed”. I actually wrote several TLT and finally settled on one,” she confessed. “Can’t wait to read your and other contributions to the TLT bookstore/library.”

    1. Pingback is just another word for putting a link to this post in yours – when you do that, a link to your post turns up here in the comments automatically. But feel free to comment here with a link, I just want to make sure I don’t miss anybody’s lines 🙂

      Thanks for participating!

  2. Done! Just in time before I fly back from my vacation. Phew! This was one of those photos that hit me with a distinct smell – a smell of books auditory hallucination! I’m probably not the only one who experienced it. Now, off to read others’ entries. Thanks, Sonya!

  3. Reblogged this on Kate McClelland and commented:
    The old book depository smelled of dust and that slight acidic smell of well fingered pages (why do they say ‘well thumbed’? When did you last ‘thumb’ a book?). The depository was warm and dishevelled like the books it contained, but Jesse loved it. She grabbed a book at random from a shelf without looking at the front cover or the title (as was her reading habit) and made her way through the maze of books to the little canteen lit by the same sad fluorescent lighting.

  4. No claustrophobia, one just opens the covers and travels about in the story du jour! Check out the Thursday Next series by Jasper Fforde for travel instructions. 😉


        1. I’m trying to choose photos that could go in many directions – the more diverse and surprising the responses, the better IMO. Loved your horror tale, so evocative 🙂


  5. To understand my little tale it might help to have seen Bogart’s The Big Sleep. Or to have been me the year I worked in a tool crib in Pine Point.

    “Maxine, have you seen Helen?”
    “I sent her deep into the 1800 stacks hours ago to try and find the Ben Hur 1860 edition.”
    “The one next to the left-handed wrench, eh!”
