Today we purchased some architectural supplies for the scale model house I’m doing with my father, but before that we got sidetracked when I suddenly remembered that the MV Logos Hope (the so called largest floating book fair) was still docked in the pier.
We arrived there after lunch. There was a bearable line and it was packed inside. I had to wrestle my way to and fro the different sections of the fair. I had thought of buying a Norse mythology book, but there was none; I was not very familiar with majority of the titles in there, so I just picked out whatever book had an interesting back flap. We had a receipt of 1050 units (US$24 estimate) for four books, which was a pretty good deal. When we left an hour later, the line was quadruple the size (no joke) and we kept telling ourselves that we were very lucky.
“Not an average Sunday afternoon,” my dad said.
I would have taken pictures but this whole thing was unexpected, so maybe the tote bag, brochure, and badge are enough for those “pics or it didn’t happen” kind of people. Also, above this post are the two books that caught the eyes of my brother and I… Though there was one entitled “Legends of the West” that I wanted to purchase but I had insufficient funds, but my brother’s going back there again so maybe I can ask him to buy it for me.
