Epic Search For The Magicians!

My internet has been on the fritz :(
It makes me realise how much I use the internet during the day!
Today, I had the day off work (YAY) so I decided to head into town and do some jobs that I can only do on weekdays, like the post office etc.
I went searching for a copy of The Magicians by Lev Grossman.
I've heard so much about it and really want to read it... (it's been described as Harry Potter for adults) but don't want to download it, because real books are so much better! I went to Dymocks, and only bought What Does The Fox Say? children's book! Yes, you heard me right, they have turned the song into a book... the illustrations are amazing... but a little creepy.
I then head across the road to a local 2nd hand book store. I didn't find The Magicians, but I found a copy of Cloud Atlas... I was very excited, I've had it in my wishlist for ages!
I then walked up the road to try another book store. No luck there either, but they finally restocked their New Zealand Lonely Planet guides, so I purchased one, so now I can start planning some ideas for my trip.
Then I tried the library... they didn't even have Lev Grossman listed on their system! I was quite upset. So I walked back to my car and came home.

I tried to take some photos while I was out. I took one photo and my phone died :(
This is one of the many old churches in Albany. I realised today, while standing in Dymocks, how beautiful it is. It's asymmetrical, beautiful windows and beautiful lines. I've never been in before.

I want to learn how to use my DSLR camera. Technically it's not mine, it belongs to my sister and I, but she has a bigger share... but it's in my procession at the time. I found some ebooks to help. I should get it out and take some photos.

So, that was my day! How was yours?
