Lose yourself in freshly printed books here.

Comedian Jerry Seinfeld once said that "a bookstore is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking". Gleebooks on Glebe Point Road, the original of a small forty-year franchise with stores also in Dulwich Hill and Blackheath, captures the serious and delightful business of buying a new book in a elegant well-tended store.

It's right next door to second-hand book shop Sappho, so visit back-to-back. Apart from selling books, Gleebooks also holds various talks, events and book launches which take place in an upstairs room. Forget "that new car smell", it's the scent of freshly printed pages that truly piques your interest.
