Time Out says
The newest sister store to Avenue's Albert Park and Elsternwick award-winning bookstores
In a world where the humble bricks-and-mortar bookshop is under threat from online retailers, Avenue Bookstore is bucking the trend by doing a roaring trade in their Albert Park, Elsternwick and Richmond shops. The independently owned shops stock a wide range of local and imported titles, with a particular focus on fiction, children's books, and non-fiction books in areas ranging from food and wine to architecture and design.
Avenue is also known for hosting a regular program of free author talks and events; check the website for the full schedule.
