As usual they had heaps of Bonds, and from memory there were a few new ones. After quickly scanning all the books available I spotted a White Pan Series copy of "For Your Eyes Only" in great condition and decided to buy another copy. I enjoy visiting this subterranean world. It has a really friendly and relaxing vibe under the City.
Before I left I also asked if it was ok to take these photos. They said no probs. I explained about this blog and how I'm trying to promote second-hand book stores and they said "Yes, we're certainly a dying breed". That statement couldn't have been more ominous as I was about to embark on further book hunting in City, but at the time I just thought they were commenting on the general state of book stores around the world.
After dumping our car in a car park, next stop was Fed Square where they have book stalls every Saturday selling second-hand.
The Ripponlea Books stall had these three different cover variants of "Casino Royale" for sale.
We then walked to Collins Street to visit Reader's Feast Booksellers. My wife always enjoys visiting this store which sells new books. It's really bright, staff are friendly and they have plenty of books.
Kay Craddock Antiquarian Booksellers next door which was unfortunately closed as it was after 4pm.
And a photo of the Regent Theatre opposite. As I've previously mentioned in this blog we saw this musical the following week.
