Nineteen Eighty-Four/Part 1/Chapter 8
Winston walks around in the Proletarian areas of London and ends up back in the store where he originally bought the diary. This time, he buys a glass paperweight with coral, over a hundred years old. He also considers renting the room above the shop. He takes interest in a poem that the shopkeeper partly remembers. On the way back, he sees the dark-haired girl again, and finally decides that she is a spy of some sort.
