What our customers think

Stumbled past this place whilst exploring Melbourne. What luck! Was directed to a book I had been long searching for and bought another two. Comprehensive catalogue. They who were working there were beautiful people. Just a shame I live in Sydney.

This is a gem of a bookstore. Great selection of books, carefully curated by someone who knows what they’re doing. Most books look new or only lightly read. Lots of good Australian content. If Already Read was a rock album, it’d be describe as “all killer, no filler!”

Oh I love this book shop!
