Book stores are becoming rather rare these days. Yet, for those who still prefer the printed word over an online work or eBook, this Bentleigh store has you covered.

The store just radiates suburbia in the best sense of the world in a suburb home of many beloved cafes and restaurants.

Sitting quietly on a corner of Bentleigh's Centre Rd with book trolleys outside and posters across its walls, from first sight it looks warm and inviting. This is as it should be for a store that has traded for over 30 years in Bentleigh.

Yet, step inside and you'll find a slick operation. The store is modern, well lit and brimming with new works. From the latest best selling fiction and biographies to works on politics, art, cooking and more.

What's more, the store is also very proud of its broad collection of children's books. For those keen to give their young son or daughter - or perhaps new nephew or niece - a solid love of reading, starting your search for some good works at Benn's could hardly be a bad idea.

Lastly, Benn's also offers an ordering service for those keen to track down a book unable to be found on shelf. While true in the day and age of Ebay it is not an impossible to do this at home, it is also a reality even online some books remain hard to find. With this, if in a real pinch, this store would make a solid port of call.

Benn's books, a Bentleigh bookstore with much to recommend a stop by.
