This long-standing bricks-and-mortar shop is a favourite among residents of the eastern suburbs.
Tim's Bookshop in Kew has been in business for nearly 40 years. The family-owned store is practically a cultural institution in Melbourne's east, particularly for literature lovers who still enjoy turning the pages of a physical book. Whether you're after a heart-stopping crime thriller by the likes of Michael Connelly or an award-winning page turner from Vicki Laveau-Harvie, you'll have no trouble finding something to capture your heart and mind amid the store's shelves. Although, if you do need a little help the staff are always keen to lend a hand. Children's books are a specialty at Tim's, so it's perfect if you need something for the little readers in your life.
