Elizabeth's Secondhand Bookshops
Find the book you've been searching for or maybe one you haven't.
You've likely giggled at the quote on the chalkboard out the front as you've meandered down King Street, but have you been inside Elizabeth's Bookshop? If so, you would find a treasure trove of new and second-hand books that any bookworm could lose hours exploring. It is one of those stores that just keeps going, with an expansive range that covers just about every genre. Hard-to-find titles regularly pop up making it a good destination for gifting, be it for yourself or others.
If the collection is a little overwhelming, you can always take a punt on the 'Blind Date with a Book' book stand. The concept is fairly straightforward: the books are wrapped in brown paper with a few clues written on the front alluding to the story inside. It's mysterious, fun and takes the pressure off when you just can't decide. Every title is handpicked by Elizabeth's Bookshops staff so the chances of landing a dud are slim.
