100 Words Replay 18

Stores full of new books are wonderful places, but prowling through stacks of secondhand books at a thrift store or yard sale satisfies the soul on a whole different level. It’s the thrill of the hunt – knowing that even though they may be loosely organized into broad categories, there’s no formula or marketing plan dictating what you will find. It’s the luck of the draw – which particular house move or spring cleaning shifted those particular volumes to that particular location. It’s the risk – knowing that you could come away empty handed, disappointed… but you might find a treasure!

    Oh I love visiting second-hand book stores – the smell of old books is something else! In India, second-hand books are often sold on the roadside and it’s great to be able to find some treasures there. I found The Book Thief in one such stall and it’s definitely one of the better books I’ve read. 
    I agree with Kathy  @Tweetsmom

      Oh, that would be wonderful – I would love it!
