Indie bookshops are often great places for book lovers to browse for hidden gems. Some gems, though, remain hidden for a pretty long time before anyone picks them up and gives them a home.

Broadhurst’s Bookshop, an independent bookshop in the English town of Southport, just sold such a gem after having kept it on their shelves for nearly 28 years. 

The tweet announcing the sale currently has 134,000 likes. 

I have just sold a book that we have had in stock since May 1991. We always knew its day would come.
