When it comes to books, not everyone wants to completely embrace the digital age. The texture and smell of a book is something that no iPad or Kindle can copy. To help you embrace your love of books without breaking the bank this year, the Queen Victoria Market is launching a huge new weekly book market.
If you ever visited Fed Square's packed book market, you'll know what to expect: this one's run by the same people. More than 5000 pre-loved and new books on every topic under the sun — from history to gardening, travel to art and literature — and a heap of second-hand vinyls will fill the market every Sunday. This should make for some very happy browsing and even happier reading later on.
After briefly relocating to the Abbotsford Convent, Melbourne Book Market will make its hope at the Queen Victoria Market for the next few months, holding weekly Sunday markets from January 20 until April 14.
The Melbourne Book Market will run from 10am–4pm every Sunday.
