This afternoon as my wife and I were driving home we passed a second-hand book store in Kew East so we stopped. I've visited Abra Card Abra Roycroft Antiquarian Booksellers many times in the past and blogged about the store a few times too. They always have a few early Bond paperbacks at the back of the store as well as a varied selection of Bond hardbacks upstairs.
But when we arrived today, just after the store closing time of 5pm (yes, I was being optimistic for a Sunday) the front entrance was locked. As if teasing me for my tardiness though, a selection of Bond paperbacks were on display in the front window. Luckily I had them all, but I still would have liked to have checked out the other Bond books inside. Looks like I'll be organising another visit, this time during store opening hours.
