...Or at least the way I imagine heaven to be: an infinite library where, unlike in Borges' "Biblioteca de Babel" one can find, understand and enjoy all books (even those that were written in dead and long forgotten languages, and even those books hat never were written, but could have been).

Well this was a bit short of that: just a wonderful antiquarian bookshop in Mexico City (Librería Madero, in Avenida Madero 12), a few days ago: I'm buying a wonderful copy of the "Historia verdadera de la conquista de la Nueva España", which I had been seeking for a while.
