845 Hay Street.. it's like coming home!



Do you have a favourite bookshop, a bookshop that you find irresistible and can't pass by? If you are addicted to books like moi I think you might find Elizabeth's Bookshop, Perth's oldest bookshop, literally too tempting :) Directly opposite the car park we use in the city the old rugs, the chandeliers, the sofas and most of all the seductive array of second hand and out of print books beckon me in like an old friend. I know I've shown Elizabeth's before but can you ever have too much of a good thing :) Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. I was after Ernest Hemingway's 'A Moveable Feast' but apparently any copies that come in go out as fast, amazing that he is still as popular today!

  3. While there was some closures, the end of bookshops has not happened as had been suggested by some. This one is one of the reasons why.

  9. Oh! A serious danger zone! I think I could find a lot of "must haves" there. It looks wonderful.

  10. My favorite used book shop closed about a year ago. Loved browsing through the collection and always found several books of interest.

  13. I love any bookshop. I could spend hours in them.
    Am a bit behind at present but to answer your question, we have lived in France now as permanent residents for the past 7 years since N retired. Before that I spent 7 months here and returned to the UK for winter. We left South Africa/Rhodesia in 2002 after spending 50 years there.
    Take care Diane

  14. That sofa would become my best friend, I may even bring a pillow along and get real comfortable perusing the books. Such a lovely and inviting place, nice of you to share.

  18. It´s truly a beautiful place, Grace.
    I now work more or less opposite my fav bookshop, but since I have my kindle I only get Braunschweig-books there, so being so near is bearable ;-)

  19. Unfortunately, book shops are few and far between where I live however I do love to visit a certain used book shop every now and then. It has big easy chairs squeezed in among the overflowing shelves. Your top photo makes me think of it.

  23. As an author, I guess I should be embarrassed to admit this, but I can't remember the last time I was actually inside a bookstore....
