Books... Gotta love them.

I could spend weeks here.

Today I got to visit to the "BorgÄ Gymnasium" - the Porvoo High School, where they have one of the oldest libraries in Finland. A wonderful place: I got to handle a 350 year old, 13 kg Bible - that's what I call a book!

A manuscript by some guy called Benjamin Franklin.
There were a couple of interesting rarities, such as original copies of the first ever books published in Finnish from 1548 (The New Testament). And, of course, some lesser known authors... :-)
