    There used to be a reading room in my city when I was a kid. Mary Bakker Eddy and all that, did they close down and disappear?

    There are a couple in Melbourne I walk past pretty regularly. One in the CBD, one just south of the city in St Kilda Rd. Only about a 20 minute walk between the two.

    I've heard that you don't have to just read books there. They have computer screens for people to read from. They call them the Christian Science monitors.
