A university student at Yunnan Normal University has astounded netizens by building a cave out of his extensive book collection amassed over the course of his studies.
According to NetEase, the owner of the somewhat excessive collection of books is a student called Li Shibai, who we imagine must be thought of as some what eccentric by his roommates. His literary cave is said to be constructed from over 5000 books.
Li is reported to have bought most of the books himself, using a combination of the scholarship money he receives from the university and money earned from working part time jobs. The man’s love of the written word is clearly beyond question.
Last year a similar story emerged with pictures of a dorm room at a Sichuan University going viral after photos of a similarly impressive book collection went viral. In our opinion, Li has them beat.
