How big is your library?
Everything Everywhere has shared a picture of the Duchess Anna Amalia Library in Weimar, Germany. I tried to embed the picture but was unsuccessful, so go to the link above to see it. The library consists of shelves of books…shelves and shelves of books. Although I don’t know how many books are in the library, this source says that 1 million articles are available; I don’t know if “articles” means “items” or “newspaper/magazine articles,” but clearly the library has a ton of items.
After I saw this picture, I wondered – could this library fit on a Kindle?
Probably not. According to an item on Amazon’s Askville service, the Kindle Fire can hold about 6,000 books.
But the Duchess Anna Amalia Library could certainly fit on a good laptop.
