Spent today touring the Biltmore Estate. Amazing place and check out this library! If I had a room this big, I'd actually be able to fit all my books in one place instead of having them stashed in bookcases spread out all over the house.

NatalieR I ❤️ the Biltmore! My favorite library, too! I always imagine myself sneaking from a bedroom at night into the library through the secret passageway. 🤫 3mo
Bkwrm7 @NatalieR Yes! That secret passageway is so cool. If I ever build a library this big, I will make sure to include one, too! 3mo

Our last day in North Carolina, and we took a long walk across the Biltmore Estate. It wasn‘t an #audiowalk, but a walk is a walk. Now I‘m relaxing and reading. I‘m looking forward to getting home and sleeping in my own bed.

kmshaffer I visited the Biltmore Estate last summer. It‘s beautiful! 11mo

The Biltmore Estate in the NC mountains is sometimes called America‘s #Castle. It‘s library is my dream of the perfect library. #newhogwartsadventure @vkois88 @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Beautiful ❤️❤️ 1y
CouronneDhiver Pretty! I‘ll have to get my MIL to take me next time I visit. 😍 1y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk There is a cool middle-grade fantasy series set in and around the Biltmore House! 1y

vkois88 That's insanely beautiful 1y
Lcsmcat @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @vkois88 You should see the inside. And the library! Google it sometime. A visit when I was 7 impressed me so much that I was determined to learn as many languages as Colonel Vanderbilt (11). I failed. 🤷🏻‍♀️ But It‘s an amazing library. 1y
Lcsmcat @TobeyTheScavengerMonk Wow! I did not know that. I‘ll have to check them out in a few years when my granddaughter is old enough for them. 1y
Lcsmcat @CouronneDhiver You should! I‘m sipping one of their wines right now and wishing I were on the grounds. 🍷 1y
vkois88 I'll look it up! 1y

I'm fascinated by Biltmore and its history so I thought I'd share this bookish history with my fellow Littens.

BarbaraJean I love that he logged his reading—starting when he was 12! I don‘t know much about Vanderbilt, but now I like him. 😊 1y
kyraleseberg @BarbaraJean They're a fascinating family, definitely worth reading about! 1y

Four libraries that were important to me: clockwise from upper right- Biltmore House Library (my inspiration to learn foreign languages); Salt Lake Public Library, which I miss daily, George Peabody Library, from my undergrad days, and the Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore, which was the first place I could check out books in French. #libraryweek #happinessisresistance @writerlibrarian

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks Beautiful ☺️📚❤️ 2y
Eggs Unbelievably wonderful ♥️♥️♥️ 2y
DivineDiana Since you mention two Baltimore libraries, I am thinking maybe you are from the Baltimore area? I was born and grew up in Baltimore! 2y
Lcsmcat @DivineDiana No, but my undergrad degree is from The Peabody. I loved both those libraries! 2y
DivineDiana Fantastic! 2y
