I'd like to have one of these . . .

I understand that with the advent of the cell phone, these wonderful iconic phone booths are being used as neighborhood libraries in the U.K. Wonder what it would cost to have one of these shipped to me? And where would I put it?

How are they used as libraries? I'm with you, though. I'd like to put one in my piano room.

They outfit them with shelves and people donate old paperbacks . . . there is a computer system that keeps track of the books and rotates them, according to what I've read.I could fit one in my living room. Just imagine, if kids had one, they'd probably play in it all day.
