Book Expo – not a bookshop

Be warned, this is definitely a rant and a rave, I promise to totally lose my top here. You might remember I was booked in to be a panellist at the Book Expo in Sydney this weekend. I was excited R Us. I’d worked really hard last weekend to get on top of my uni […]

Here I am, doing my civic duty and getting a friend from her physio appointment to her home via the shopping centre when we come across the lovely bookshop. I think I’ve written about them before but possibly before I started doing more than just putting in photos. They have a lovely little shop and […]

I’m a bit picky today. This first one is missing an apostrophe, I hope it wasn’t given to someone like me. It is a beautiful piece and I took this so long ago it’s probably been sold now. Op shops have the best stuff. This is one of the stands at a music shop in Mt Waverley. […]

Friday Photos – Blarney Books

Today’s Friday Photos is brought to you by Blarney Books, Port Fairy. Not that they’re paying me but it does sound more official. You can see from the photo they take up a whole building with a lovely Norfolk Pine sitting outside giving shade. I could have taken ever so many more photos as Blarney Books […]

Today’s Friday Photos is brought to you by Ironbird Books in Port Fairy, not that they’re paying me for this as they’re not but that every photo today was taken there. I probably should have mentioned to them my predilection for taking photos in bookshops and why but I didn’t. I loved this little set […]

Getting my mojo in gear and scheduling these in advance so you don’t miss out. This Book Grocer is in Hall Street, Moonee Ponds despite Google thinking it’s in Puckle Street. It’s a couple of doors down from the best bar, The Valley Cellardoor. Don’t ask me about their alcoholic beverages as I’m not a drinker […]

Wish I’d had time to actually go inside this bookshop with its lovely name but we were on tour at that point and I didn’t want to hold people up. It looked very lovely. We saw a few of these coffee cups dotted around the place, a bit like the big M signs we see […]

In Jerusalem we stayed near a shopping mall called Cinema City. Our first trip there was an explosion of light and sound as they have cinemas there along with all the light, colour and advertisements they feel they need. We spent quite a bit of time there what with one meal and another as there were some […]
