I was keen to go to the local West Lakes Seniors Computer Club,


Australian Seniors Computer Clubs Association

its the only place close to where I live that I can learn about Adobe Photoshop. I made my way out there at the appointed time, paid to join the computer club, paid for the course now all I have to do is wait, its only taken me about two years to learn how to use. Especially seeing that I collect second hand & used books computer books of all types

Then it was time for the meeting which took a long while start, but when it did it was good , to listen to the speakers, for me it was an eye opening event to see so many elderly people that were involved with computers and running the club itself, it really challenged what everyone seems to say that older people don’t absorb new technology. Now I really know this is not true because of my friendships with some close friends, but to see so many was a very good sight indeed.

The guest speaker was Andrew Boyce from the Morisset library, the speech was very informative, about how the library will be used in the future what things will stay & what things drop by the wayside, all in all it was very informative.

Yesterday we wanted to look at some new books so for a change we went to Westfield Tuggerah for me that was the first time for about three years. It had had nothing to do seeing that I had nearly finished Stieg Larsson’s

the man who left to soon

Stieg Larsson

first book of the Millennium Trilogy The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo I simply have to read the rest of his book I enjoyed from start to finish in one hit all others were on hold to it was finished, rare for me. I also brought a few copies of Truman Capote’s book In Cold Blood, we even lucked in on some Nora Roberts Romance Fiction, Peter Watt Australian Fiction, Bill Tuckey true crime books on our customers want list, and we are always looking for books for people its part of the job, if your looking for a book then send me an Contact Jim or Phone 0249 735 925

Mixture of fiction

We left late and in the end had lunch at McDonalds YUK enough said. What was strange for us is we never even went into a used book shop this must be a first time I think I have ever gone to Wyong or anywhere for that matter and not even looked in a charity shop or bookshop.

If your looking used bookshop around our area take a look at my Google maps to see where the other bookshops are around our area.

Some of the people that I get to meet have so many diverse interests. I find it very interesting to learn all about the books that I’m asked  to find some of which are very rare indeed

From collectors like JB & his passion for Ion L Idriess books he collects sets of these very collectible books, if you want a first edition & signed with a dust jacket, you will have to pay a premium. From gold mining, diamond hunting tin mining, Then he also wrote about some of our early heroes,  Reverend John Flynn, Sir Sidney Kidman and also The Australian Guerilla series

Then there collectors of the Australian Series by Vivian Stuart a 12 books series with the The Exiles first published in 1979, years before The Potato Factory, Thommo & Hawk, Solomon’s Song, which was later published by Viking Bryce Courtenay’s The Australian Trilogy a very nice publication.

I also get people that collect old favorites like Capt W E Johns Biggles series we cannot forget Enid Blyton’s Famous Five, Secret Seven, Noddy.

Another of my book collecting friends is CJW he is a very specialized collector of any rare or limited editions of books about the Beatles you know that group from the 1960’s He has only just got online so his hunting has become more focused but some of his books are very expensive, such as Kaleidoscope Eyes: A Day In The Life of Sgt. Pepper. One of a limited print run this sure to become a collectors edition over time.

Then there is my other friend, he is also a avid collector of the Matthäus Merian  beautiful artwork books with fantastic drawing of old cities throughout Europe, similar to Samuel and Nathaniel Buck’s both of which he has a very large collection.

Then there is the collectors of comic’s, books on movie stars, cooking books, I also have people that collect books on Rugby League, or it could be a Nancy Cato book.

I collect books on many subjects, but my main loves are

  • Engineering
  • Architecture
  • Yacht Design
  • Australiana
  • Watercolor Art

But like all good things I have to part with them sometime, later rather than sooner. No doubt I will meet some more book collectors hunting for those hard to find titles.

If you happen to be looking for a book then please call me on 0447 330 911
