Old Books

Today after doing friday worship (ibadah jumah), I walked around sidewalk in front masjid salman. There were many sellers selling clothes, kitchen set, till book. I stayed long in a book seller namely Pak Budi. He sold many old books that make me interesting to observe more. I asked him how much “Di bawah Bendera Revolusi” price ?. He said “1.5 million rupiahs”. It was incredible because four years ago I bought the same book only 800k rupiahs.

Then I saw interesting three : Labbaik and Merantau ke Deli by Hamka and Zaman Edan by Kamadjaja. I bought all of them 150k rupiahs. This moment reminded me when I was an undergraduate, I was a collector of old books especially if they were written by Pramoedya Ananta Toer.
