Oxford Bookstore – My Review | Bookosmia
One day, my mother decided to take my friend and I to the Oxford Bookstore as they had organized a small carnival for kids.
They had arranged for games, reading books and participating in reviewing competitions. If we bought more than two books we would get 50% off on the total bill.
The store was near my house so we left a little late. The store was quite big and was beautifully decorated with balloons and streamers.
There were few children as the Covid 19 pandemic was going on. First, I looked around the store and took some books which I liked to read. We played games and won many prizes.
When we got tired, we sat on the big swing and read our books. Some of my favourite books were Charlie and the Chocolate factory and Lost and Found, which I bought. My friend bought Famous Five and The Grumpy Bear.
We played two games; one was a shooting game and the other one was a handmade board game. The staff were well-mannered and kind and greeted us as soon as we entered the store.
The store had a vast collection of books for different ages.
I liked the store and would recommend it to my friends. I can guarantee that you will have fun in this bookstore.
