Weekly Quote: Virginia Woolf

Posted on Updated on

Second hand books are wild books, homeless books; they have come together in vast flocks of variegated feather, and have a charm which the domesticated volumes of the library lack.

― Virginia Woolf

This is a photo of a used bookstore that I recently discovered. I was immediately amazed with all the rows of books that seemed to reach the sky. I could have spent all day there.  It was magical.

    Despite the fact I have a kindle I still love second hand book shops, first of all you find book you make otherwise never have discovered and secondly they are so cheap. Books deserved to be recycled.

      I also own a kindle, yet you are correct there’s many books I wouldn’t have discovered if I wasn’t looking at an actual store where the books are often in random order.

      Yes, I was in heaven when I saw all the books piled high to the ceiling. Thanks for your comment.

    2nd hand book stores are so easy to get lost in, in every sense of the word.

      I definitely got lost in the second hand bookstore as my eyes looked at all the many books. Thanks for stopping by.

I'd love to hear from you! Have a great day!
