I know this has been done elsewhere on LT, but I thought this is a good place to do it as well.

I'm reading This Dark Endeavor: The Apprenticeship of Victor Frankenstein and the library in his chateau is 'Biblioteque Obscura' built on a hidden level by his great+ grandfather, William Frankenstein. It contains books and equipment for practicing alchemy. The entrance door has a hole instead of a knob. When you insert your hand, it is gripped and not released until you perform certain movements clued by an inscription.

benj, that's cool! I'm so glad I found this site. I'm pretty sure the titles mentioned in This Dark Endeavor are fictional. Since I'm listening to the book, I can't jot the titles and authors down, but I will make the effort next week and note them here at least.

One of my all-time faves has to be Sepulchrave's magnificent library from the Gormenghast books. As a book lover myself there is a definite lump in my throat when that one goes up in smoke. I was planning to add a quote here from the book describing the library but I find I've lent my copy to one or other of my kids - or maybe I've somehow lost it, which would give me a wonderful excuse to buy a new, gloriously illustrated version :-)

The labyrinth library in "The Name of the Rose" is one of my favorite dreams...I'd LOVE to get lost in that collection...with an adequate supply of food and beverage - and candles, of course!
