In honor of New York Public Library’s celebration of the #libraryshelfie, here is a look at the Paris Review’s reading nook and the entire collection of our sixty-year archive.

We will continue to grow our digital presence in 2014—digitizing our entire archive, developing audio and video content—but nothing beats sitting in your favorite chair with a cup of tea or coffee and your favorite book.
