Local Bookshops | Top 3

I’m really looking forward to discovering bookshops around the country (and world) from today’s Top 3 Thursday posts!

Local bookshops are always such a joy to me, and it’s been hard whittling it down to just 3. There’s nothing quite like walking in to a room or space full of books just waiting to be cracked open, with a dedicated bookseller on hand ready to help you find your next great adventure, or a book a friend will love!


1. Berkelouw Books – Leichhardt

I absolutely ADORE this bookshop! There’s a treasure trove of second hand books in the upstairs level, plus new books & bookish gifts on the ground floor. To top it off, there’s a lovely little cafe right next door so you can grab a coffee and immediately dive in to your fresh book.

2. Better Read Than Dead – Newtown

Better Read Than Dead is a Newtown favourite for sure! Their selection is incredible, and they also run fabulous events really often! Plus, their Instagram account does a weekly showcase of their top 10 sellers of the week, so you can see what others in the area are buying and reading – which I always

3. Gleebooks – Dulwich Hill

There are a few of these dotted around the place, but my favourite will always be the one within a 10 minute walk of my house (for obvious reasons). It has a gorgeous selection of stationery, plus tables of books and a gorgeous little cove for the children’s books.

I love the neighbourhood vibe of the shop, plus if you’reΒ very lucky you might catch them on a day they’ve put their review copies out to take for free since they can’t sell them!


Share some of your favourite local bookshops with me! I could have had a much longer list than this but wanted to stick to some I frequent often πŸ™‚

Until next week,

  1. Love this post!

    Would be ace for you to check out Readings (Carlton), Hill of Content (in the CBD), and The Avenue (in Albert Park).

    Perhaps you should organise a trip πŸ™‚
