Blogs and books

I seem to read food and fashion blogs more than I read actual books of late. Having said that, I am always in the middle of at least 2 books. I think the positive thing here is that I love love LOVE to read!

While on my afternoon stroll, I paid a visit to one of my favourite places in the ciy, Archives Fine Books on Charlotte St.

This store is great, the whole place is packed from floor to ceiling! It's quite large, with a great back section that houses my favourites - cookbooks and travel writing. They also have a really great Sci-fi / Fantasy section!!

Yay, knowledge!

Gah, I really love this place. I can EASILY spend 2 hours here without a second thought. I ended up with a lovely looking travel novel by the Author who wrote Under the Tuscan Sun (great movie!!).

Being the dreary, overcast day that it was, my next move was naturally over to Zaraffas for a Cappucino and the first 2 chapters!

Loving the book... but it's doing absolutely nothing to stop those pesky travel urges!


  1. I love Frances Mayes writing. I particularly enjoyed this book.

  2. This is the first book of hers I have read. I'm enjoying her descriptions of the architecture, art and her love of Tapas!

  3. oH MY GOODNESS - It so huge. I can see myself getting lost in the cookbook section.
