Ding dong, read some books

Ding dong, read some books, originally uploaded by lindsontheroad.

Ring in the new year by resolving to read more! Hurrah! Actually, that’s not my new year’s resolution, because I do in fact read a lot (yay for unemployment!), but some people should definitely pick up a book more often.

So from what I remember from history, the bell in this photo is from the original Parliamentary Library in Ottawa, and when there was a fire (like a hundred years ago), the bell was the only thing that really survived. So here it is, placard and all, outside the rebuilt Parliamentary Library. It’s a pretty cool bell, and the library is, architecturally, my favourite part of Parliament Hill. So there you go. Ding dong!
