San Francisco 2019

We did a lot of walking in San Francisco. There were reasons for it. We have this theory about recovering from jetlag and it involves water, walking and sunshine. Our first day there I did over 22,000 steps. That’s steps, not metres or yards. My travelling companion has started to take notice when I want […]

Dymocks, Bendigo

This is the last you’ll see from me of my trip to Bendigo last October, unless you see me on Facebook. I have one more photo which doesn’t fit into any category so I’m putting there at some stage. Dymocks is found inside a little shopping centre. If you pop inside the Bendigo Bank Central […]

Book Now, Bendigo

Last October we took a brief visit to Bendigo. Naturally I insisted on looking at the bookshops available. We found two of them, one pre-loved and the other a Dymocks. This is the one choco-a-block with pre-loved books. This first photo is the outside of the shop. You can see it’s a lovely building and […]

Whinge Day

I have this creeping suspicion that I’m over-committed. More over-committed than I should be. It’s leading to me dropping the ball some days. The most recent time was my blog for Wednesday. This week has been rather interesting. We launched the website for Nullus Anxietas 7: The Australian Discworld Convention. This meant a lot of […]

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 […]
