The next day after we arrived, the Saturday, we spent the majority of the morning walking and checking out the many second hand book stores. Our two hosts first took my wife and I to Newtown.
We parked near these houses. They reminded me of the terrace houses in England. From here we walked to King Street where the book hunt began.
King Street, Newtown.
- Gleebooks (new) - they had a few new Vintage Bonds.
On the Sunday when we caught the ferry to Manly we also visited a couple of second hand book stores.
Raymond Hawkey Pan Bonds, and the guy behind the counter also had a look in a box of recent aquisitions and found a "Casino Royale" 2008 movie tie-in. No luck though.
All up, no new books for my collection, but it was great to visit some new stores, do some walking, chat (slash "talk shit"), spend some time with my wife and catch up with our friends in Sydney.
