The Paperback Bookshop

The quintessential bookshop where you can buy all the books you're looking for — as well as all the ones you weren't.

Perched at the top of Bourke Street hill since the 1960s, The Paperback seems untouched by time. Small, dark and cosy, this store makes any book buying experience intimate and memorable. Though, we wouldn't suggest sticking around to cheekily read the first chapter of your purchase — there simply isn't the room. Fitted out with old wooden shelves, The Paperback is stacked full of classic and contemporary titles in fiction and non-fiction. With space being such an issue, each title is lovingly selected. There's no room for Dan Brown on these much-loved shelves.
