A literary adventure.

This past weekend I finally got around to doing something that has been sitting on my to-do list for two years – visit The Monkey’s Paw, an antiquarian bookseller that specializes in ‘the old and unusual’. They are also home to the Biblio-Mat, an art installation/vending machine – get a random old book for $2.

I loved it. The smell of the old books, the slapdash design, the friendly staff. And the books themselves – there were so many I wanted to take home! It was really hard to limit myself to a small handful. And of course, I tried my luck with the Biblio-Mat (English Social History, here I come).

I want to go back already. Definitely my new favourite place.
