There is no bigger joy in this world than owning books and being transported to different worlds. The beauty of reading books is that everyone takes different things away from the same book. There are a lot of people who enjoy collecting books. But is buying brand new books always necessary? Presenting reasons for why you should consider buying second-hand books rather than the new ones:
1. Feel of Old Books
The smell and feel of the pages of an old book are something else altogether. When you experience the worn pages of books that have been read and re-read several times, it is nothing short of ecstasy
It is true that whenever someone owns a book, a little bit of them stays in the book. And with a second-hand book, you might just be able to see a glimpse of who the previous owner was. You can find underlined phrases and if you're extremely lucky, you might just find a tiny piece of the person's thought in the book
If you're extremely tired of vying for a book that is out of the bounds of your budget at the moment, you should visit a second-hand bookstore and get the same for much cheaper. You can even find older books for as cheap as Rs 50
New or old, books are books and frankly, a tattered book makes you look like even more of a reader than a pristine book does. The last advantage of owning a second-hand book is that it is, by the end of it, a book! And books are always a good thing, right?
