Melbourne’s most popular bookshop was named “International Bookstore of the Year” at the London Book Fair 2016, and locals wholeheartedly agree. It’s easy to spend an entire afternoon here riffling through the works of local poets, browsing lavish cookbooks and buying stacks of the latest novels. As a fiercely independent business, Readings’ selection is wider and deeper than those of most big-name retailers; there’s a commendable range of Australian literature, too.
