Second hand books

In the time of Kindle and iBooks it lovely to see the second hand books stall at Southbank still attracting attention. There is something about holding a book. The feel, the smell, the age, the size, each one is different. A book gets damaged, worn, aged. You can interact with it because it is tactile. Whilst I think digital books have there place for ease, cost etc, . And the best part of the decline hand book industry is you can find reasonably prices treasures!

What do you think?
