As I mentioned in my last blog entry, after spending some time at the Yarragon Book Fair I then made a visit to the Yarragon Book Shop.
As soon as I walked in the owner, Peter, remembered me and asked how my Bond collecting was going. I told him it was a little quiet at the moment, but I was still looking. After a quick browse I found a US hardback copy of Benson's "Zero Minus Ten". (Unusually I didn't take a photo!) Peter then showed me two paperback Bonds he had at the front counter.
already having a copy of this movie tie-in dust-jacket I decided to
purchase this copy too due to its relative scarcity. It is slightly damaged, I suspect by silverfish, but it was still a great find. "The Man With The Golden Gun" was also a better copy than my current copy, so I bought that too.
But our trip home along the Princes Highway was briefly interrupted by a visit to the Red Door Book Shop in Warragul. My last visit to this store was on a Monday when it was closed (see the bottom of this previous blog entry for a couple of photos if you're interested. My wife and I had just spent the weekend in Metung.) This time however it was open.
As soon as I walked in Wayne, the owner, greeted me and asked if I needed any assistance. I told him I was looking for Bond novels and he remembered I was the person with the Piz Gloria website. He told me he still had it bookmarked on his computer while I followed him to his Bond paperbacks.
