Simon would have been in heaven in that library. Although he may have had problems getting from one level to another. He walked with walking sticks a lot of the time.

I wouldn't mind a library like that either.

That's the Hollow Tree. It still stands, or at least what's left of it still stands, albeit as a propped up, rotted out, burnt out shell of what it once was. They've been sinking major bucks into trying to preserve it for years now. I think it should be allowed to go the way of all trees that have lived their lifespan, but that's just me.
