For my old column, Friday Photos, I emailed Avid Reader in Brisbane and asked for photos. I do prefer to use my own photos, but the travel is challenging at the moment. We’re not doing an overseas trip this year thanks for COVID19 and I can’t decide whether that’s a good thing or not. Yes, it means that I can’t stop at random bookshops and take photos, but it also means I get a lot done at home. I figured I’ve probably read about 2,000 pdf pages of research for my book since we went into self-isolation.
If you’re in Brisbane you should go and have a look. You can peruse their website here. But you can find them at 193 Boundary Street, West End West End.
Whether you’re a bookseller or a reader I’m happy to feature your bookshop, or your favourite bookshop on Friday Photos. Please take a photo of the outside and three or four photos of displays within the shop. Go to the Submit a Book page and email me the photos along with a few words about your shop. Answer a question to help me write a few words: What is your favourite thing about this shop? (Can be multiple things)
