This book shop is one of a few, it's hidden amongst the cafes of the Cappuccino Strip in Fremantle and is quite a gem as far as book shops go!

An Aladdin's Cave of books, you could spend much of your morning or afternoon browsing through all of their collection, with a useful addition of small comments by the owner on the type of book it is and an outline. As the books are second-hand you are able to pick up quite a bargain too; I have now gathered a small library's worth collection from this store at a very reasonable price!

One thing that stood out in this bookshop that I have never seen before is the 'Blind Date With a Book' section where for all you bookworms out there who may be feeling brave or just want a change from your usual genre you can pick up a wrapped book and take your chances at something unseen! You are given a brief description but little is given away about your upcoming literary rendezvous!
I am yet to give this a go, but I shall...

So if you fancy a cheap new read, or are much like my mother who finds it fun just to have a walk around a bookshop, pop in. They also happily receive books, but only when their stock is not full to the rafters!
