My Trip to book fair
Next morning, as the morning sun filled the blue autumn sky I borrowed my sister’s car and drove up to the public ground which was prepared for the event. Feeling apprehensive, I waited for my friends near the entrance. A few calls later, we trailed in groups at the many book stalls to get the catalogues and select the books as per our needs. To get the right books and select right reading materials that suit our levels entailed turmoil against the warm sun of Mongar. However, I had mentally prepared myself for such challenges and before the noon, I had almost finalized my list of purchase. By the end of the day, I had completed 70% of my task and my friends even praise me on my success on the first day. (Most of them hadn’t made a purchase of worth Nu. 20,000 while I had done triple the amount). I still had one more day to finish my task. The next day was spent exploring more books and doing the final purchase.
The two days at Book Fair was a thrilling experience and with many rewarding moments.
