Their selection of books is fantastic. Bookshelves cover most of the walls and if I could, I would’ve bought the store out. They have a large selection of books on science and art, which I thought was interesting. But they also have everything from gardening to psychology, pretty much every thing your bookworm heart desires and even more.
Usually I tend to glide over to the travel section, especially when I’m travelling. They also had a table full of books on Australia or by Australian authors, which was exactly what I was looking for. I like to buy a local book during my travels, sort of like a souvenir to remember the city by.
I’m still patting myself on the back because I somehow managed to only buy one book, which is a miracle. I’m green with envy of the people of Melbourne who get to step into this bookstore on a daily basis. Then again, if I were one of those people, I would be broke in a week…so I guess I should be thankful instead!
Isn’t this bookstore is lovely though? What section would you beeline to? x

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! Ru dissolves in puddle of lust and envy.
Oh you would love it. LOVE. IT. (I sometimes see it in my dreams still…)
Oh my gosh… I would love to find a nice comfy chair and just read for hours until they kick me out 😉
I know what you mean! It was so nice and beautifully cozy!
