A couple of weeks ago I visited Cornerlamp Secondhand Books in Moorabbin but it was closed. Last Friday I visited again as I knew it would be open this time.

I've just returned from a book sale organised by Lions Australia in Glen Waverley, VIC. The sale is on till 4 today and midday tomorrow. The books were all second hand, in great condition, really cheap and amazingly well organised. No luck for me today although I did find a couple of Bonds by Jeffery Deaver and Sebastian Faulks.

Despite passing away in 1990, Roald Dahl currently seems more popular than ever. Steven Spielberg's "The BFG" based on the Dahl book has proven to be successful at the cinemas (unlike some other Dahl book adaptions to screen). While at The Princess Theatre here in Melbourne the stage play "Matilda" has been continually performing to full houses.
This afternoon my wife, her sister, Jean-Claude, Brownie and I met in the City to see why "Matilda" is so popular. And now we know. It was fantastic fun, the sets were great, the girl who played the main protagonist was brilliant and Australian Tim Minchin deserves every award he received for his contribution to the songs. If you haven't already seen this stage play you should definitely catch it some time soon
Just prior to "Matilda" my wife and I managed to visit the City Dymocks store. In doing so I was able to pick up a copy of Steve Cole's "Heads You Die" as well as finally purchasing a copy Charlie Higson's "By Royal Command" with the new Young Bond logo. This latter book completes my set of this series of books.

And more snow/ice by the side of the road as my wife and I drove back down the mountain.
