Book Blogger Hop: 29/10-1/11/10

Hi Hoppers! Hope you’re having an interesting reading week. Me, I’m excited about Daiso and Zara finally opening in Australia (even though I live nowhere near the stores, at least I no longer need a passport to get to one).

Today’s question is an excellent one:

What is the one bookish thing you would love to have, no matter the cost?

I’d love to have access to any book I wanted any time. You might say that’s possible with ereaders and the internet, but I’m still finding that the ereader stores and stock are still a bit limited in Australia. Internet ordering is still at least four to five days from computer to doorstep. Maybe I should just open a massive Kinokuniya next door to my house and everyone could share the bookish love…

The Book Blogger Hop is kindly hosted by Jennifer at– it’s a fun way to relax into the weekend with all things bookish!

  1. I heard something on the radio the other day about Daiso. Apparently someone went to go there and there was a queue! If I am down that way I might drop in!

    (BTW, your links aren’t working)

    1. Oops, thanks for that. Should be OK now.
      I would queue for Daiso, have got some awesome bargains (and presents) from there over the years. Their stationery is quite good too. The $2.80 price tag is a bit odd though (Japan = 100 yen – sometimes plus 10% GST and Singapore’s slogan is ‘Always $2’). Still, a Daiso in the country is fantastic!

  2. Hi-I found your blog via the hop and am now a follower of your blog

    I am currently doing a reading life project on Australian Outback Short stories of the Henry Lawson era-so far I have posted on six early Australian writers-

  3. Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog! I see that you’re a fan of Michael Palin’s travel documentaries. I’ve seen only one, but I’ve read three of his books about them – Around the World in 80 Days, Pole to Pole and the one where he goes around the Pacific Rim.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂 I see you’ve recently read and reviewed Jamaica Inn. It’s one of my favorite books. I don’t know why, but everytime I read it I fall in love again with Jem. There’s just something about him, LOL!

    Hope you are having a great weekend 🙂 And I hadn’t realized until reading this post that ebooks are still hard to come by in Australia 😦

    1. Jem is a true sweetie at heart- he’s so much more engaging than any other of the male characters in the book.
      I’m trying to find an ebook of Rebecca at the moment- neither of our major ebook stockists seem to think it’s worth an ebook, which is a pity. I think it’s still new releases and selected authors for us at the moment, but I suppose the more of us there is, the more ebooks will be available!

I enjoy reading your comments! Thanks for stopping by.
