Yesterday, after tons of times walking past it to go to my favourite bookstore in Dublin (Hodges Figgis) in Duke Street, my eyes caught a gem of another bookstore. Cathach Books sells first editions of James Joyce, William Butler Yeats, Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett and so many more fantastic Irish authors.
In the window display, a first edition of Ulysses by James Joyce sells at €45000 (approximately $57323,47 or £36099) and if I would ever win the lottery, I would definitely go to the store to buy some of its gems! Now Cathach Books is my favourite bookstore, followed closely of course by Hodges Figgis!
As a bibliophile I need books around me and on days like today I miss working in a library big time. For that reason I am working hard on being well again and on hopefully getting better medication to tackle my multiple sclerosis!
Life is good when you have books to hug you, comfort you and nourish you!
