I was walking in the Old Town in Bucharest the other day, and there was a fair (jewelry mostly) next to St. Anton’s Church (near Unirii Square). I noticed there were small stacks of books on most tables. I realized that after I veered from one table to another checking out those books. What a wonderful bait, I thought. To me, they were powerful than the jewelry. And yet they were there only as a favor to someone, who wanted to sell some books this way. Pretty good books, too.

It was the day the Orthodox Church celebrated the Transfiguration of Christ. Here’s from Orthodoxwiki:
Jesus had gone with his disciples Peter, James, and John to Mount Tabor. Christ’s appearance was changed while they watched into a glorious radiant figure. There appeared Elijah and Moses, speaking with Jesus. The disciples were amazed and terribly afraid.
Now, I don’t know how I got from books as bait to religion, but I thought I’d mention the feast since it was the reason the fair was held there on that day.
