Berlin Part Two
There are 46,513 books in Peter Kleinhempel's private library. When the Berlin wall still stood high and the Stasi kept a close watch on Peter's comings and goings Peter's library in East Berlin was his world. After the wall came down and Peter removed himself and his books to the west the apartment collapsed, apparently supported by Peter's books and the cornerstone Webster's Concise English Dictionary. The term 'concise' is something of a misnomer. Not only is the font size so ridiculously small that the book comes with its very own magnifying glass but this 'concise' book weighs about the same as a vat of German bratwurst.
Tip: Window light is good. Side window light is better.
