I found this old book with a leather cover on Geordie Broon's second-hand market stall in the market (£1). It must be at least 100 years old and falls to pieces when I open it, I love it - who did it belong to and what tales could it tell if it could speak! It's been so well used, stuck together with sellotape. The title itself shows how old it is - "The British Empire Universities Modern English Dictionary". I know Kindles are useful, but in my opinion there's nothing like a book, new or old!
