Dymocks – Tooronga

Finally and finally. I visited Dymocks in Tooronga some months ago. It was back in July when the weather was very cold and sitting in a chair reading put my feet in danger of freezing. I thought I’d lost the photos. I’ve had issues transferring photos from my phone to my computer. Managed to do […]

Shop local!

I read this article After Irma, Some Florida Stores Reopen and it got me thinking. The article is about bookshops in Florida, the damage they’ve received (or not) from Hurricane Irma and if they’re going to be able to open. I started thinking about shopping local and Amazon popped into my mind. Essentially, it’s shop local so […]

Loot from Readings, Carlton

I recently visited Readings in Carlton with some friends. It’s always more exciting going to bookshops with friends. They point out the things that excite them, I find more things that excite me and we get photos. Well, I get photos and then get to be excited about the experience on my blog. Makes me […]

Readings Bookshop – Carlton

Last night The Victorian Discworld Klatch organised a meal to welcome a friend from Adelaide. After a lovely meal we walked the incredibly long way directly across the road to Readings Bookshop in Carlton. It was during our wander through Readings I knew what I’d be writing about today. Here is my exposé of a bookshop. Yes. […]

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 […]

Friday Photos

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 […]

Friday Photos

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 […]

Friday Photos

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 […]

Port Fairy

We did our normal and went away for a few days, and as normal I didn’t tell you and just kept the writing rolling…the wonders of wifi internet. If you follow me on Facebook you might have noticed a drop off of sharing but only if you weren’t totally involved in the festive season. Our […]
