I went to a library couple of weeks ago for some reference material for my studies. It was a pleasant evening with humid weather and full of cold wind. The library was very old, some may even refer it as ancient but it’s still there even in this digital era. I took my first step inside that library, the floor was full of bookish dust which was lying there for years. After that, I saw about ten metal rack for books, although they were standing there for decades corrosion was eating them like termites eat wooden planks. I was looking for some history related to ancient Rome but when I got the books I got flabbergasted when the books themselves appeared excavated directly from ancient Rome as when I tried to turn some pages they gave me crackling sounds of paper.
The pages appeared too old that they turned into yellowish color with fade and it looked like manuscripts rather than modern printed books. The dust over the books which I took was enough to fill a standard size tea cup or even more. Then, I went looking for a world atlas to locate the modern cities of Rome, after searching for a while I finally managed to excavate an Oxford atlas from the filthy rack of the bookshelf.
