Life, the universe and everything, with a cup of tea thrown in for good measure!

E and I attended the launch party - "an evening of fun and frivolity" - for the New Edition Bookshop on William Street in Northbridge.
I have been a fan of New Edition in Fremantle for a while, ever since I wandered in one day and saw the prominence that they placed on Booker Prize nominated books and all things literary. This was while they were still on the main drag (Market Street).
My sister E, usually sharp on all of the trendy stores in town, initially believed that it was a religious bookstore (due to the name!) but has since revised her assessment.
Never judge a book by its cover!
They really know how to put on a party, with the wine free flowing, yummy nibbly things and live entertainment. We were both keen to buy a book but the press of the crowd was too much. I like to browse well before I make up my mind on what to buy, so we will definitely be back later when there are less people and more room to move!
We also wandered past the newly opened Fox Hunt and tu. C was with us by this stage so we saved those stores for another occasion.
