Readalong – Review of “The Library of Babel” by Jorge Luis Borges

The Library of Babel is a short story by Jorge Luis Borges that postulates a universe made up of a library w/books exactly 410 pages in length, each page 40 lines long w/80characters per line. No two books are alike, though they may be separated by one character difference. The library is formed from hexagonal cells connected via spiral stairs & a short hallway. The narrator of the story is a librarian, one of many who live within the library.
