In a section of the Midnight Library book, we read:
Every life he has experienced since coming to the library was in fact a different personal dream. The first life he got married and had a pub was Dan’s dream. A trip to Australia was Easy’s dream, and Nora’s regret about not going was more to her best friend than to herself.

The dream of a swimming hero belonged to his father. Yes, it was true that as a child he was interested in the North Pole and wanted to become a refrigerator expert, but that decision was largely made up of his conversations with Ms. Elm herself in the school library. Labyrinth, well, that was his brother’s dream from the beginning.

There may not have been a perfect life for him, but surely there was a place in life worth experiencing. Nora also realized that if she wanted to find that life, she had to broaden her search.
Ms. Elm was right. The game was not over yet. No player should give up as long as he has a piece on the screen.

He straightened his back and stood flatter.

“You have to choose more lives from the top and bottom shelves. So far, you have tried to make up for your most obvious regrets. Top and bottom bookshelves of different lives. Lives that exist, but you never imagined or wanted them, you never even thought about them. “There are lives you can experience but have never dreamed of.”

“You mean there are sad lives?”

Part of the Midnight Library book
The floors of the book began to move on both sides of Nora. Their angles did not change. They just slipped horizontally and moved. It was also possible that the classes did not move at all, and that it was the books that moved. It was not at all clear why or even how. No tools were found to do this. There was no sound, and the books did not fall from the bottom or the beginning of the floors. The books slid at different speeds depending on which floor they were on, but none of them moved very fast.

“What is happening?”

Ms. Elm’s face fell apart. He straightened up, put his chin in, took a step toward Nora, and clenched his arms. “It’s time to start, baby.”

“If it’s okay, let me ask this.” “What should I start with?”
“Every life involves millions of decisions. Some of these decisions are big and some are small. But every time a decision is made, the result changes. An irreversible change that in turn causes other changes. “These books are a window into all the lives you could experience.”


“The number of lives you can have is as likely as you have in your lifetime. In some lives you make different choices and those choices produce different results. If you just did something different, your life story would be different. All those lives are in the midnight library. “They are all just like real life.”

“You mean parallel lives?”
“not always. Some of them are more … intersecting. So, would you like to experience a life that you could have? Would you like to do something different? Is there anything you want to change? “Did he do something wrong?”

The answer was easy. “Yeah. everything.”

This answer seemed to make the librarian’s nose tickle.

Ms. Elm quickly put her hand in the sleeve of her ski collar to pull out her tissue. He immediately put it in front of his face and sneezed inside.

“Goodbye,” Nora said. And he saw how, as soon as the librarian finished using the handkerchief, a strange magic disappeared from his hands.
“do not worry. Napkins are like life. “There are always a lot of them.” Ms. Elm returned to her words. “Doing just one thing in a different way is usually like doing everything differently. No matter how hard we try, we can not change the things we did in life … but you are no longer in life. You came out. “You have the opportunity to see how everything could go.”

Nora said in her heart: It is not possible for these to be real.

Ms. Elm apparently knew what he was thinking.

“But the truth is, Nora Seyed. However, that is not the reality you understand. The best condition that can be described is the middle. Neither life nor death. It is not the real life you think it is, but it is not a dream. Neither this nor that. “Very briefly, the midnight library.”
Classes that used to move slowly stopped. Nora noticed that one of the floors on her right had a large empty space at shoulder height. All the other sections of the floors were full and shoulder-to-shoulder full of books, but there was only one book on the back on the thin white floor.

Unlike other books, it was not green, but gray. Just as gray as when Nora first saw the building beyond the fog, the gray stone walls came to mind …
