Look what I found at an indie bookstore today!
This is the first time I’ve seen Doctor Who novels in person. I knew they existed, of course, but had never seen them in a bookstore. Plus these ones are like vintage. (The place is a used bookstore called Fahrenheit 451 Books). Was not initially interested in the 5th and 6th Doctor ones (the two on the far left) but decided to buy all four cause these were all they had. (Plus they were only $6 each!) The 6th Doctor one is even a “choose your own adventure” type of story, which sounds fun!
And, as if my day couldn’t get any more Whovian, I went to this little store nearby the bookstore that sells British stuff. I’d seen it but never been there. And guess what I found? Jammie dodgers! Naturally I bought them. I asked the lady who rang me up (who was British, natch) if they were good and she said they’re really good and that “Doctor Who always eats them,” to which I replied that that was where I had heard of them. (In retrospect I wonder whether I should’ve corrected her…after all his name is “The Doctor,” not “Doctor Who,” and I know most Whovians get annoyed by people calling him “Doctor Who”…but eh, whatever. Ironically, the back cover copy of the “Claws of Axos” book calls him “Doctor Who” as well [“Only Doctor Who remains suspicious”].) Going to try them later.
Anyway, even though I couldn’t get together with my best friend Amy today, I’m glad my mom suggested I come hang out here while she’s at work…this is a fun area! Wish I could live here, but since it’s walking distance to the beach I could probably not even possibly afford it right now… :(
That is an awesome cake - though shouldn’t it be “The Hunger Games” on top and “Mockingjay” on the bottom?
Joyeux French Friday! :)
Today’s post: vintage French paperbacks like this one:
