Yesterday I had a few minutes to spare in the morning after an appointment in downtown Sydney. It was a beautiful morning, the sun was bright and the wind was only moderate. So I went for a little walk to stretch my legs before having to return to school.
As I walked along George Street and then by the library to drop off some books, I remembered hearing an interview a couple of weeks ago on Information Morning with the owner of a newly-opened used book store on Charlotte Street. I decided to drop by and see it for myself.
The moment I stepped in the door of Ed’s Books and More, I felt at ease. Ed and Trisha were chatting with a friend, and they said hello to me. Ed broke away from his conversation to give me a quick tour of the place, asking me what kind of books I like to read, and then pointing out the various sections. The place is very well organized, cozy, and has so much to explore, from vintage books to modern, collectibles, pottery, wall hangings, sports memorabilia and vinyl. The prices are incredibly reasonable, too.
I said to Ed, “I could spend the whole day in here!”
Then he said, “Oh, and coffee and tea are complimentary!”
I’ll be scheduling a day soon to spend at Ed’s Books. I recommend you do the same, or at least a half hour. You’ll be glad you did.
Necessary info: Ed’s Books and More is at 446 Charlotte Street. They are open 9-5, Monday through Sunday, and you can call them at (902) 564-2665.
