Clothes and toys, recipes and jokes, advice and prejudice: we all have to handle all sorts of hand-me-downs every day. Tell us about some of the meaningful hand-me-downs in your life.
I love reading books. Books are my best friends. They entertain me, guide me, transcends me to a different world, fulfill me and direct me towards spirituality. Some religious books act as a fuel for my soul. A glimpse of those books can be seen in a picture below.
I don’t hesitate to buy them from book fairs, Street markets, even from friends on discounted price and “Big book sale” in shops. Over a period of time I have managed to develop a small library in my house. These books are my meaningful hand-me-downs in my life. I can beg, borrow to read freshly pressed from a colleague. Couple of times picked up few from my neighbours who were not willing to pack and carry their old collection of fiction to next station. I never mind being a second owner of a classic literary work or a colourful travelogue.
Few things never lose the shine and value and can be great hand-me -downs, books are one of them.
I BELIEVE BOOKS CAN BE PASSED DOWN FROM ONE GENERATION TO ANOTHER.
