I found on trip adviser that some one said Chateau Chantilly was like a little Versailles with out all the tourist. Seeing as it was a unplanned flying visit to France, we didn't really have time for places where there would be lots of queues, other than at Merlin's Castle. I will get to that in another post. Before I show you any of the UNBELIEVABLY beautiful gardens or views, I wanted to show you the one room that made my heart beat faster.
I love a good book. I think being able to read is the biggest most important thing a parent can teach their child. You can learn so much, teach yourself a new language, how to cook, where to go... the list is endless. Reading, yes, I have a love affair with books. Be they paper, or little electrons bouncing in my Kindle.
I give you the library. I apologise about the pictures. Like the National Trust in the UK, you weren't allowed a flash. Enjoy...
|it was a little bit Hogwarts... Love Harry Potter, yes I do|
|Hand written manuscripts. My face was pressed against the glass for these beauties. I can imagine a Monk, slumped over his desk writing this in the bitter cold, by candle light.|
Exquisite isn't it? Love, love, loved it.
I am currently reading Made from Scratch by Jenna (Love her blog, I have a very small case of Barnheart) and also The Museum of Innocence.
Do you love a good book? What are you reading right now?
