Booking Around the World – King’s Library Tower

Kicking off a new photo feature on #BookLoversDay with a classic stack of books at the British Library

The nearly impossible to photograph King’s Library Tower at the British Library

I love to travel and I love writing books which is why the name of this blog is Writer with Wanderlust. Whenever I’m in a new place, I seem to be looking for a bookstore (and a coffeeshop or restaurant, but that’s another blog!). I’ve found some amazing places and bought lots of children’s books in languages I can’t read. So, my new feature, Booking Around the World, will highlight wonderful books, bookshops and bookish images that I have discovered on my travels.

Since I currently live in London, it’s fitting to start with a classic image from the British Library. The King’s Library Tower sits smack in the middle of the British Library. It spans six stories and is covered with glass making for a stunning spectacle from any angle. The books contained inside are actually the collection of King George III and include over 65,000 bound copies.

I’d highly recommend popping in the British Library for a peek of the King’s Library Tower when in London.
