Warehouse of Unwanted Books

Have you ever bought a book - a book you know to be great - maybe a book you already own - at a yard sale because you wanted to "rescue" it from potential oblivion? Not long ago I read an unusual novel - The Shadow of the Wind, by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. The action takes place in Barcelona, just after the second world war. At its heart is the mysterious and labyrinthine "Cemetery of Forgotten Books" where first-time visitors, by tradition, must "adopt" a book, promising to care for it, making sure it will never disappear.

And now - I can hardly believe it: this! It sounds like a fantasy.
