Time Out says
One of the best second hand bookshops in Melbourne (and there are many, excellent entries for that big prize), Bookhouse is just a haven of awesome among the hustle bustle of St Kilda's Fitzroy Street. It's also surely a contender for some of the best window displays, with an almost dark magic ability to draw you in with the weirdest of titles brazenly displayed. It's only tiny, but has a whole lot of heart, and an uncanny way of swallowing entire afternoons. Owner Ben Kemp says he often finned mementoes of other people's lives in the books he finds, and loves leaving them for their new owner to discover.
