I like reading paper books, and reading those dark words facing the computer always makes me headache. I was too busy to go to the bookstore for a long time. It is rare for me to take a day off on May Day, so I invited some friends to buy books. The night before, I made a long list of “Where is the Mountain”, “riverbed”, “as if there is wind”, “Deep season” and “Yimen in Jiangzhou” by Chen Qiwen. Hermann’s white whale, and the book called “No. 84 Charing Cross Street” which is called the book-loving Bible. I like these books because I have read other books of the author or browsed some chapters on the Internet. He paid attention to blogs there many years ago, and he had never published any books at that time. Reading his words can always make you feel a kind of unspeakable quietness. There is no low singing, no tying. He just talked with himself in the simplest voice, a kind of words from the heart. Most of the time I am dare not read what he wrote. When I saw his words, I would not dare to write for a long time, because compared with his words, I feel that I am still in primary school. Words are always magical, especially in the dead of night, the most easy thing to think of is his words. I am not satisfied with e-books and so on, and always lack a feeling, maybe only when the words are attached to the paper can they feel alive. When I read Chen Qiwen’s words, it was a lonely Walker with a light gray cover in a bookstore in Foshan. The first text in the book —— how far can a boat go, I was deeply fascinated by it. I bought it immediately and read the book crazily in one night. I like reading books, but it is far from that degree of craziness. But Chen Qiwen’s words made me feel crazy about books. Description like flowing clouds, beautiful vocabulary, abundant connotation, and his deep impression of his feelings in the words. He perfectly combined enthusiasm and calmness together, and looked at history, characters and the nation with detached wisdom. Unconsciously, he walked into your heart. I have heard of “No. 84 Charing Cross Street” a long time ago, which is praised as a scholar’s bible. In fact, it is a collection of letters from an American writer and a bookstore in London. No. 84 Charing Cross Street is the address of the bookstore. That day, I went straight to Tianhe Book shopping center with this list full of expectations. This biggest bookstore in Guangdong will never lack my small books, although I have been to many bookstores before and haven’t found them. Literature is on the third floor, and the computer inquiry system is faulty, so it can only be found slowly along the bookshelf. From foreign literature to Chinese literature, from small to prose, from essays to essays, I almost turned over the literature section for four hours, the book I wanted didn’t even see a shadow, which almost made me despair. For me, who doesn’t like buying books online, it is almost a little cruel torture. As a result, I got angry and bought a set of painting tools to learn painting. Anyway, learning painting is also a long-planned thing. I still finished reading “No. 84 Charing Cross Street”, which is an e-book downloaded on the Internet. Even though I don’t like reading in front of the computer, I can’t wait to see it. These letters are actually plain, but there seems to be an impulse to cry. I don’t know whether it is because of touching or this kind of too real words. The strong smell of human feelings seemed to evoke my childhood memories again. Writer Hailian hanfu and bookstore manager Frank del had written letters for as long as two decades. This platonic friendship lasted until the end of one of them’s lives. When Hailian Hanfu walked into the bookstore No. 84 Charing Cross Street for the first time, it was already more than twenty years later. Frank del had passed away. These two friends who had been through letters for decades, I haven’t seen it until the end, which is a pity and also very sweet. I always like those real words, which can always touch the most fragile string in my heart, making me sad and happy. Find the most real life in the gap of words. Every time I go to a place, I like to read the wish wall on that side. The simplest, saddest, happiest, or most irrelevant wishes are all wandering in the words on the wall, there is the most real life there. Behind a rainy season is another rainy season. One sadness is followed by another. However, I will live with a smile and look for the next impossible you. This is a sentence written on the wish wall of mushroom Hall milk tea shop in Dongguan Street, Yangzhou. After a long time, I still remember it. Maybe this is the charm of words.
