A few days ago I posted a photo on Instagram of an awesome second hand bookshop I visited in town, and today I thought I'd share a couple more. This place was pretty amazing, just tucked in between a British Heart Foundation charity shop and a pub!
I didn't buy anything, but I bet if I'd looked around long enough I would have discovered something I loved! I couldn't get over the shelves and shelves of books, stacked up as high as the ceiling - no doubt some of them had been there for years!
Of course, my former Christchurch resident self did also immediately think "Wow, I really wouldn't like to be here in an earthquake!" I'll probably never get that thought out of my head, even though I now live overseas! :O
