Well, as reading books is my favorite pastime, I have been an avid reader and a big fan of books, journals, and informative magazines since my childhood. Hence, the most important thing that I bought which is also very close to my heart is a big and fully illustrated Oxford dictionary consisting of around 1000 pages.
This story goes way back when I was a kid studying in 6th grade. Actually, on my 12th birthday, a salesman came to our house to publicize and sell some books for children. However, while he was conversing with me and my mother, me being a curious child came across that dictionary in his bag which was intended for older students. Nonetheless, I pestered my mother to buy it for me, as I was very fascinated with the illustrations in that voluminous book which wouldn’t even fit in my little hand. After that, I used to read it almost daily and go through those amazing pictures, and I must say, it really helped me improve my vocabulary and diction. In addition, I used it for years to enhance all of my school and college projects as well. It really helped me cultivate a keen interest in the English language and Life Sciences.
Not to mention, as it was the first book that I had bought on my birthday, it remains my most treasured possession to date. I still remember how thrilled I was when my mother agreed to buy me that book. So, that book is my favorite purchase as it reminds me of my childhood and makes me feel delighted like a little kid even now.
