Any good bookstores in melbourne?
Preferably second hand with philosophical and ideological topics
>>
just go to abebooks.com
>>
>Alice's Books
In Rathdowne Street. A really good philosophy section, last time I was there they had an old copy of Being and Time in the original German, The Ego and Its Own, and a bunch of other stuff. There's also a lot of old leather bound type stuff and a fairly big foreign language section. There's heaps of subsections and a big range basically
>Red Wheelbarrow
In Brunswick. Pretty small, but has a decent philosophy section - nothing too out of the ordinary, though
>Collected Works
In the Nicholas Building above Retro Star. It's got the most interesting range. Lots of philosophy, critical theory, weird stuff you've never heard of, etc. Also lots of good lit from Africa iirc
>City Basement Books
Near Flinders Street Station. Bad philosophy section, but a pretty big fiction section with lots of nice old penguin paperbacks and that kind of thing

I'm from Geelong and I say you're a fucking cunt. Enjoy your concrete jungle full of limp-wristed slack-jawed hipsters and violent immigrants.

What about Perth?

Just moved here, there's a SF/fantasy only bookstore next to the city's train-station that has the weirdest passive-aggressive signs in the window, that's all I know (moved here only a few months ago)

I miss Lifeline Bookfest :(
