Today’s been a long day and I am tired.
My exhaustion has been aided by the half litre of beer that I drank not too long ago, along with a lovely spinach-garlic pizza.
So this is it. No real blog entry, but I have a a link to Weimar News in the New York Times. The Anna Amalia Library is being reconstructed, and it’s progress is being tracked ocassionally.
My favorite quote:
Many book collectors, knowing the library is in the market, send catalogs of their collections, which often consist of not-so-rare books that the library does not need.
“Sometimes I have the feeling that the whole of Germany would like to send their unread collections of Goethe and Schiller back to Weimar,” said Michael Knoche, the library’s director.
Thanks to Jerry for sending me the link.
