Roll Your Own Traveling Library
TreeHugger shows a lot of ideas for mobile living. Books are often a problem for those on the move; they are heavy. Danish Architect David Garcia solves the problem with his Archive II circular library that lets the reader walk away with half a ton of books.
Archive I in the background "is a weight balance library,the readers chair is elevated in proportion to the amount of books in the shelves." They were exhibited at the Danish Art Academy in 2005.
The average reader can read about 240 words per minute.
A 300 page book normally takes 9 hours to read, non stop.
I you read while you walk, you can read a book in about 43 kilometers.
If you read and walk, watch out for traffic.
