The Invisible Library

Theyíre auctioning off Jorge Luis Borges personal library. For anyone whoís a fan of the late great Argentine author and Librarian, this is a big deal. When I first read about it, I was torn between fear and desire. fear that they were breaking up what possibly is one of the greatest collections of unusual and rare books and desperately wanting, say a first edition of Labyrinths, in Spanish. Not that I can read Spanish but both my wife and I want to learn so our imaginary children can be raised bilingual. And really, what better way to learn Spanish than reading one of the masters?
