Bazaars, gotta love 'em
Books are perhaps the best reason to visit a Bazaar once or twice a year. I got 10 for 5euros which would have cost seven times more when I buy them from a bookstore or when ordered online. Here are 7 of them, 2 reader digests hardbound with three books in each (Grisham and others in German), Dickens’ Oliver Twist, Kipling’s The Jungle Book, Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe, Jenkin’s A House in Flanders and a book each for the 3 kids(not in photo).
Old is gold or One man’s trash is another man’s treasure holds true in this market. There are unlimited books available, one just needs the patience to search, turning each from the heap like looking for the proverbial needle. It was all worth the picking, flipping and browsing anyway since you get to go home with books that are most of the time still looking new! (You just really need to dig that pile 😉 lol).
A few days after, I decided to buy some more books from Amazon. I actually planned to buy Sherlock Holmes (Sir Arthur Conan Doyle). I was curious about this famous character as the inspiration of the Manga and Anime, Metantei Conan (Detective Conan). I was at that time unaware of the movie :D. So this is the first book on my list, that I’d be able to watch the movie afterwards. (I find it more appealing to read the book first of all book-based movies). I included 2 Jane Austen’s and a Bronte’s along with it. Since Amazon delivers free at times, I get to avail that and paid about 25 for this lot. Well, the Bazaar books are still cheaper but it’s fine…for the book lover in me anyway.
