A Day At Starmark!!!

I love Starmark........my favorite bookstore in Kolkata.I hang out there with my daughter for hours,we both love this place so much.

As soon as we enter the place we heed for our respective sections,she gets busy browsing through new titles and stationery in the kid's section....I stop for a moment ,as I also feel like stopping by those funny colorful picture books once again.......then the coloring tools,stickers,sharpeners ,erasers......I can go on and on.

Somehow I manage to pull myself up from the kiddie seat ....................................................................and starts taking a walk along the shelves in the bookstore....fictions......mysteries.............romance..............and of course classics; so many categories and titles to chose from!!!!! But before I decide to get a book for myself I want to sit and browse some books,I want to spend some time here......holding books in my hand. I want to escape into the wonderland of Alice,in the valleys of a distant land,in the beautiful era of Jane Austin...............or solving a mysterious death with Mr. Poirot in an Agatha Christie novel.

There my daughter comes running upto me holding her new found treasures in a colorful cane basket......"mommy,look what I got....I want them all".............................................................I come back from my daydreaming instantly,take her in my arms ............and tell her "yes,you can"....then I look at her smiling,proud face and ignore all the books I wanted to buy for myself..............well of course, except the one I find too hard to part.......LOL.
