- I was in search of some books.
- I went to a second-hand bookshop.
- I began to search books.
- My amazement.
- I came across other books.
- earch of different shelves.
Paid the price and left the shop. Once I wanted some books. I went from ship to shop, but could not procure them from anywhere. At last a bookseller asked me to go to a second-hand bookshop.
Next-day in the evening I went to a big second-hand bookshop and inquired about those books. Then man in-charge found out one of the books at once. For the rest he had to search. I, Therefore, offered to help him in searching the books. He readily allowed me to get in and search the books which I wanted.
When I went in, I was amazed to see a store of innumerable books. Ali Baba would not have been so much amazed on seeing the treasures of the forty thieves in their cave, as I was amazed. It was a treasure-house of rare editions of many old books. There were many tall big shelves containing all sorts of books. All the books were carefully arranged. One shelf was for literature, another was for history, a third was for science, and so on.
I began searching my books from shelf to shelf. It was like searching shells of pearls at the bottom of the sea. While doing so, I. came across some books of my favaurite authors. As I wanted them to read, I took them out and kept them with me. After some search I found out the books which required.
But I could not resist the temptation of looking into other shelves, with a view to find some interesting books. To my good fortune I found out a number of them. :. In this way I bought out about twenty books more. If I bought all the books, the price would have been beyond my means. So I had to select only a few of them. It was a pleasant worry such as we experience in a jeweller’s shop while selecting jeweller.
At last I made final choice of the books, over and above the books that I wanted. I paid the price of all the books and went home. Not only had I the full satisfaction of getting the books that I wanted, but I had also the pleasure of finding some good books of my favourite authors. My visit to that shop was really memorable. I wish to visit the shop again at leisure to have the joy of searching good books and buying some of them.
