Time Out Melbourne

Possibly Melbourne's kookiest book store, and definitely a contender for loveliest staff. Penny has run this joint opposite Windsor Station since time immemorial one suspects. A haven of second hand science fiction and fantasy novels, it’s also a hot spot for true crime and war history. Penny may runt the joint, but it's her cool cats who own it. True story: I once picked up a bundle of three awesome books and when my wallet proved empty, Penny told me forget about the money and just love them. Penny, we love you!
