House of Books


I just got back from my third visit to the land of the Pyramids and my favorite Bibliotheca Alexandrina in Alexandria, Egypt. Home to a lot of books, to say the least!

    Tell me about it Shalom!

    They are also currently working on the world's largest internet archive of information...I am not quite sure how/what it's all about but I saw the computer room for it which was a huge hall with lots of servers and harddiscs...imagine doing research there! :)

    Missed all of you too Moi!

    I have been around watching but D Reb has held the fort for me while I was swamped with new good but dramatic life changes. I can't believe 2008 is over...I was just doing Best of 2007 it seems...and now it's time for GT's best of 2008!!!! Yikes!

    Love this place :)
