“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again,
there is no use in reading it at all.”

Wonderful image and beautifully captured. Love bookstores, especially secondhand and antiquarian ones. And I love the Wilde quote!! Well done! ~V~V~

A gem of color, texture, form, which combined produce a wonderful musty odor!

Superb image that captures the thrill and pleasures of browsing old books !

This image takes me back to when I used to haunt book stalls like this. But where I live now, they seem to have disappeared, replaced by large, cold chains, populated by numbed underpaid clerks who sloppily toss around books they don't know anything about or even care about.

tutto il sapore della conoscenza qui
così belle quelle copertine che vien voglia di sfiorarne la superficie
non so perchè, ma mi ispira il libro con la copertina verde pisello al centro della prima fila :)

Nice 'composition' ;) Nice light, colours, and strong lines to bring the eye in.

Ah yes... but what about the books we will only read once? The crime novels, the detective fiction, the airplane distraction reading? These will end up in the "pass it on" bag! The books we really love we hoard and cherish and will not part with.

a picture after my own heart!...If Wilde had said "could not" instead of "cannot", I would agree with him....but there are so many books and so little time...V

Oh! How I agree with Mr Wilde.... An interesting selection of bindings!!
