WIP Weds: Yarn and Book tourism in Toronto


On Saturday DH, DS, and I made for Toronto. The trip from here takes about and hour. After dropping DS off at “Adastra”, a sci-fi convention in the north of the city, DH and I headed down the Don Valley Parkway and into Toronto.

First stop Romni wools, where I adopted some poor lost wool and some other stuff…


Then Bakka Phoenix Books specializing in Sci-fi and fantasy books, we liberated a few.


Then off for lunch in Greek-town on the danforth, next stop The Sleuth of Baker Street bookstore, wonderful store full of detective and crime novels. Needless to say we did a little more liberating.


On the way home we gathered up DS from the convention, one of our favourite authors Jim Butcher (Dresden Files novels) was speaking and darling DS brought us an autographed book and DH bought another book… “Ghost Story”

Basically Yarn and Book tourism in Toronto :0)

Meanwhile back at the ranch…
