A Book Older Than Me

A Book Older Than Me

I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library. ~Jorge Luis Borges I have in my possession a book of poetry published in 1933. I’ve read many books older than me. What makes this book unique in my library is that it was also printed in 1933. Having the same book in […]
