Sleeping in the library

Have you ever gone to sleep in a library?

Now people can stay in one, at the Library Hotel, New York (hat tip – On The Beat).

It’s not just that it’s near the New York Public Library . Or even that there are lots of books in the rooms. The rooms are broadly arranged by the Dewey Decimal Classification scheme, with different rooms for different categories – from Advertising to Zoology. I’m not sure who decided that law gets a kingsize bed while economics rates a single….

The nearest thing to a concept hotel here in Islington is the Clink, a former law court converted to a youth hostel.

Definitely a bargain compared to some other London cells.
