All the books in the world

You might have seen this story before, it's such a nice one that it constantly gets reposted all the time on the net. The original is in Croatian, we don't know who translated it.

For those who didn't read it yet, you're in for a treat.

Awww.. that was sad in a way.  When they descended the staircase it reminded me of the Cemetery of Forgotten Books in Carlos Ruiz Zafon's, The Shadow of the Wind.

Enjoyed that - thanks Dan!

Very beautiful story!
In a way it did remind me of when i read Michael Ende's classic "Die Unendliche Geschichte" (The Neverending Story) for the first time...
The only way i can describe it is that it feels like there is true magic out there... You just have to believe in it
