im not a fan of e-books. I like holding a book in my hand, the feel of paper, the flipping of pages.

مكتبتي بالبيت ندر ما فيها كتب اشتريتهم من الكويت كل الكتب اما من لندن او لبنان لإيماني انه الكتب هنا ممنوعه منع بات بسبب الرقيب الذي منع عنا ان نستسقي العلم من كل المصادر والتوجه ان يفرض الرقيب الكتب الدينيه فقط ما توافق اهواءه السخيفه وخير دليل معرض الكتاب التخصصي بكتب الطبخ والدين

Love second hand book shops! I like the idea of a book being previously owned by someone else. If you're imaginative enough, you can make up a whole life story for them, including what made them decide to buy that particular book, and what perhaps made them give it up to the book shop... :p
