According to its owners, Potts Point Bookshop is found in the 'Paris-end' of the inner-city suburb. And the beautiful independent bookstore certainly makes you feel like you've entered a European pocket of Sydney, with its light-filled space and stacks upon stacks of fiction and non-fiction to gaze over.

The shop is filled with books of all kinds, from an impressive list of art and design prints to political memoirs and the latest paperbacks. The sheer volume here requires a dedicated team of experts, and you're in good hands as 2020's ABA Penguin Random House Young Bookseller of the Year, Simon McDonald, is here to guide you through whatever page turner you're after.

Between them, the store's staff has 50 years of book selling expertise to share. It also hosts author talks and readings from time to time.
