Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec
I love this cathedral of all cathedrals that is the BANQ. This is where is housed the largest collection of French works in North America. Walking through the aisles, I feel good, I feel free, I can actually breathe the books. Oftentimes, I can go just for this feeling, this sensation...and maybe also, for lounging in the comfort of an armchair, right next to the majestic windows overlooking Montreal, my book in hand, ready to be discovered, ready to take me away!
