On the weekend I managed to organise myself a 'Readers Pass' for the British Library. The Reading Rooms at the British Library are only accessible to those who are conducting some type of research (either academic or personal); and fortunately, given my new status as a student of Psychology, I meet the criteria.
So off I went on Saturday, went through the application process and then proceeded to venture in to the Humanities Reading Room.
I can honestly say that it was love at first sight. The huge vaulted ceilings, gorgeous oak desks and big comfy leather chairs surrounded by the most amazing leather bound books was almost too much for me.
Then to top it all off, the man sitting opposite me looked such the part. Dressed in a 3 piece suit, with a polka dot bow tie and a carnation in his lapel, small round spectacles and a big pointy grey beard... he was the quintessential British academic.
Yes, Ziggy was in seventh heaven. I have a feeling I am going to be spending a lorra lorra time in the British Library.
