1. Dymocks Adelaide

"Love, love the new Dymocks on Rundle Mall. It just has such a feel good ambience with its lovely ceilings and space. Plus, the range of books and topics is fantastic. It even has a dedicated space for cinephiles, and lots of cool stuff too. Staff members are also quite friendly. The only thing missing is a coffee/ tea shop."

I have also taken home many a quirky book that I have not seen elsewhere in my travels.The owners are knowledgeable and lovely to deal with. Definitely my favourite book shop in Adelaide!"

"Terrific trader. Not only did they have in stock a fairly rare vintage book that I was after, but they had it at a reasonable price. The book was dispatched quickly, it arrived quickly, postage costs were reasonable and it was beautifully and securely wrapped and packed. Communication A+ also. Great to be able to support an independent outfit. Highly recommended."
