From Photo Walk to a Book Shopping

Today I organized Howdy Stranger! A Flickr Photowalk at Frere Hall, Karachi. As usual people were late so I checked out the Sunday Book Bazaar at Frere Hall. I really had a great time searching books and found some rare books from early 20th century. Some bookstalls have really great collection. Book shopping is like a therapy to me. It gives me relaxation. Searching books from these book stalls is like a treasure hunt and sometimes you can find some gems or a jewel in the crown.
