book·ish : Kansas City Library

This giant bookshelf serves as the facade for Kansas City Library's parking garage. I'm guessing it's probably the only parking garage that is itself a tourist destination. I'd certainly love to visit!

book·ish/ˈbo͝okiSH/Adjective


1. (of a person or way of life) Devoted to reading and studying rather than worldly interests.
2. (of language or writing) Literary in style or allusion.
3. (of art and all manner of lovely things) devoted to the written word as a form of art and as a way of seeing the world.
4. (of SheWritesandRights.blogspot.com) anything of the aforementioned characteristics as they are found on the interwebs and reposted by Bethany, because bookish and writerly things always give reason for amusement.

Really! Ha! I didn't know you grew up there, Melissa. For some reason I thought you were a native Chicagoan. Anyway, have you ever been to this bookish parking garage? :)

You know, I can't remember if I've been there or just seen it in pictures... funny how memories work like that. It's super cool though!

Wow, thats amazing! I've never been to Kansas City before. & I like that you added the definition of bookish- I don't like how many people associate that word with something being wrong with the person, because I just take it as a compliment :). xx. Renee
