Second-hand books are way cheaper than new books. Both will have the same contents, so unless you are looking for something that has been recently published, it seems reasonable to prefer a second-hand book. As long as the words are readable, I’m good. I even have one book where the pages are already falling apart, but I’m still ok with it because I can read the text.
Sometimes second-hand books have surprises, like when my PJAM kabarkada, Jenny, bought a second-hand book, it turned out to have a signature from the author. My friend, Vincent, says that second-hand books have a certain charm–the well-loved pages caressed by repeated reading, the art and pictures of years gone by, the thoughts and fantasies of the authors of the past are all within that old book.
How about you? What do you love about second-hand books? Please leave a comment below!
