I wish it were possible to re-read my favourite books and experience them as I did that first time. The wonder, the excitement, the heartbreak. Everything. I want that first time with a book again.

A town known as the “town of books”, Hay-on-Wye is located on the Welsh / English border in the United Kingdom and is a bibliophile’s sanctuary.

I had three hours here once with a couple of friends and we spent it running from store to store like headless, bibliophile chickens.

Totally unrelated sidebar: at the end of the trip one of said friends and I had to split the cost of a small duffel bag so we could take all our new books home.
