Beachfront Libraries are the Best Idea…Ever.
Via Huffington Post Books:
"Beachfront libraries are an ingenious addition to shorelines around the world. Forget your book? Go grab a replacement. Finished your latest read? No worries, many choices await you."
Not the best idea ever! Unless the books are crappy poorly-constructed shit-for-literature, you probably shouldn’t have books near vast amounts of water, sand, and (hopefully) picnic condiments and beverages.
Happy 10th Birthday, Millennium Park!

Looking west and slightly south, Millennium Park in all its glory.
