It's hard to imagine a better place to read and work than study hall at Jacob-und-Wilhelm-Grimm-Zentrum, the new central library of Humboldt University, in Berlin.

The library—which is located very near the Brandenburg Gate—was designed by Berlin-based Swiss architect Max Dudler. The building holds two million volumes and I wish it could hold me and a bed too. It's certainly one more reason to consider moving into that wonderful city.
