Descripción de la librería: A small neighbourhood second-hand book shop for people who want to read books. Besides the books in the shop, our claim to fame is having a catalogued inventory offsite of more than 50,000 books that can be brought in or posted the next day. We are not a rare-and-collectable bookshop, instead having a bit of this, and a bit of that. While everything's catalogued, it's more fun to browse the shelves. So come in and say g'day.
