A good read

I confess to being bookish and love a good read when I have both the time and energy.  There's been a fair amount of press recently on the supposed demise of book stores with the advent of online retailers like Amazon and e-books like Kindle.

When I lived in Brunswick, I would buy my books mainly from Readings and the Brunswick Street Bookstore.  Since moving to Rosanna, I have become a regular at Andrew's Books in Ivanhoe and have also heard great things about the Eltham Bookshop.  Please support your local, independent bookstore if you can - it means the money stays in our local community giving local people jobs, a reduced carbon footprint and a thriving literary scene here in the north-east.
