It is a truth universally acknowledged that half the fun of buying books is in the browsing. Every bookworm will attest to the excitement that arises from exploring the aisles of your favourite bookshop, discovering new authors at every turn. Stacks upon stacks just brimming with possibility. The sense that somewhere within these shelves is the perfect read.
Anticipation mounting as you flip through pages hoping to stumble across your next favourite character. It is this thrill that makes me partial to independent bookstores. Places that have atmosphere and personality, that mirror the worlds they house between their walls. One such treasure is Earthcare Books. Hidden in plain sight behind Drive Inn Cafe at 10 Middleton Street, this bookstore has a unique vibe that sets it apart.
