I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

The Rotary Club of Mitcham Secondhand Bookshop is something of a magnet for bibliophiles and music lovers on a budget. I used to work nearby, and there was always a constant stream of people heading across the car park to grab a bargain.
Book prices are typically $3-$5 for those in good condition, while records sell from $1 up. A Gilbert and Sullivan fan would have been very excited when I visited - an entire album set was available for only $5.
The staff are all volunteers and very helpful: I was looking for a copy of Sands & McDougall's Directory of South Australia which unfortunately they didn't have in stock, although the chap behind the counter mentioned proudly that he had four volumes at home. Judging from the look his wife gave him, he may not for much longer.
