Book of Kells

Getting to see the Book of Kells in Dublin was an amazing experience for me. If it was up to me I would have spent hours walking in the library and examining all the history on how the book was made. I think it was this experience more than anything that made me realize how much I love literature, books, and the history of bookmaking. Several months later I began looking into getting my masters in Library Science and am happy to say I will soon be embarking on a double masters program in Archives and History. To illustrate just what a dork I am, I saw a job the other day working on book preservation and conservation in the Harvard Library and I may have started to drool.
