A day at the flea market — books galore

There’s a park at JLT — a good 15-min walk from the Damac metro station — that’s beaming with activity every third Friday of the month: a flea market that has anything from carpets to extension cords, hand-me-down clothes and shoes, home decor, shoes and yes, books.

I get to have collector’s items like Gabriel Garcia Marquez’ “Love in the Time of Cholera,” a bit fitting in this time of coronavirus, perhaps; and Charles Dicken’s “Hard Times,” as well as “Oliver Twist.”

One wonders why people give up these precious literary gems.

At any rate, looking forward to more great digs
