Flinders Street Station at the corner of Elizabeth Street
Bourke Street Mall
Inside the historic Rialto building
As well as getting in some shopping we also visited the usual second hand book stores:
- City Basement Books - no Flemings but a couple of Gardners
- Kill City Books - no Bonds paperbacks but there were the same couple of ex-library Bond hardbacks
We also visited Reader's Feast, Embiggen Books and Dymocks searching for a new copy of "Hurricane Gold" in the Kev Walker Young Bond series. No luck, however I did notice that Reader's Feast and Dymocks are now both stocking the Vintage 007 series (see image below which was taken in Reader's Feast)
Also, on our way home we drove past Andrew's Bookshop in Ivanhoe. I rarely visit this store, and I thought this visit was going to be fortuitus when I found a set of Kev Walker Young Bonds on the shelf. Except on closer inspection of the copy of "Hurricane Gold" I noticed several pages had been slightly folded. Unfortunately I had to let this copy go. For some reason it is proving hard to find a great copy of this book !
