Feed Your Soul at a Perth Bookshop
As the international debate on book versus e-book continues to rage on, Perth’s bookshops offer a quiet place to ride out the storm for the diehards amongst us that cannot imagine a life minus the turn of a page.

Perhaps it is the smell, or the “sequestered nooks” that American poet Longfellow wrote about, but a trip to a bookshop is still considered one of life’s great pleasures for this gal.
