Time Out Melbourne

You know how sometimes you go into a second-hand bookstore with great expectations and walk out with nothing because they're selling tat? Well, Brown & Bunting's the exact reverse. Brown & Bunting specialise in the most interesting selection of second-hand children's books and general literature: it's all in great nick and, god knows how, but they get their hands on some incredibly collectible titles (quite frankly, we'd dig on some vintage Dr. Suess).

While kids' books and gen. lit. are their mainstays, they have an excellent range of design, art, non-fiction and cook books too. The added bonus is that new books are brought in daily. Surely you can give a once-loved title a new forever-home?
