Whilst passing through Bendigo we were lucky enough to score a parking spot for Ripley right outside one of my favourite second-hand book shops
Book Now has been open since 1984 and claims a selection of over 50,000 used books. It also perfectly captures that special vibe that I seek in book shops (a little harder to find in second-hand bookshops IMHO).
Strategically placed seating to encourage you to stay and browse for a while, that unique book smell and just the right balance of organisation and random shambles that makes the whole thing an adventure of discovery.
And if bookshops are your thing like they are my thing…..I think you will enjoy this short film: Welcome to The Last Bookstore
