These were such clinchers @ 5 INR per pc. Yippie...these were the books which we use to term as contraband ( my parents use to call this stuff trash...lol...so it was so much fun to get these smuggled into home and reading at late night .....he he he)
Surprises which you find while scouring the place for old books...very interesting...on this book I found somebody's budget plan for Jaipur...!
One lovely memory of Jodhpur is visit to Book shop " Harish Book World" - this was at one time famous for second hand books ( Now the family has diversified into Modern shaped Book store @ Jalori Gate as well as publication on their own....)
However I just visit this place which is located near clock tower ( ghanta ghar) and you could smell the old books, touch the yellowed pages. There is something about hands down/ passed on old books...as if beside the books character they also have a story of their own ....totally unknown to the current holder.
I picked up Guy de Maupassant ( complete short stories)
I have few books from the author and I just love his writing ,however not the complete works so it was good to get this copy.
Kahlil Gibran ( Prophet 1983 edition - which makes it my 3rd copy - I have a extra copy which I was thinking of gifting , however that would have meant losing on original version...so it was good to get this version beside my travelling copy.
