When I received the package, it's a surprise when I tore off the plastic paper and found a white fancy chocolate box, then I shook it to make sure there was no chocolate but a book in it. That's my delayed birthday gift from one of my best friend, who interests in collecting old books. 

When he asked for my demand for a special 25-year-old birthday gift, "Send me one of your favorite collection," I said, "a book much older than me is the only gift I want."

"What do you like to read?"

"I want to read your natural favorite. Everyone may have a similar experience that there is a kind of book attracts you even without others' recommendations.  For me, since the first time I went into a library, I prefer classic novels. For my sister, it's detective novels and psychology. If you have chances to chat with people about books, asking for his or her natural taste, they would guide you enter that world and admire the beauty with them together.  So, pick one of that kind of book for you to me."

"No problem, then I'll pick one about the philosophy of language."

So, Philosophical Investigations by Ludwig Wittgenstein wrapped in a chocolate box is in my hands now.
