One of Melbourne's most iconic book stores, The Paperback has been championing the independent scene since the 60s, and will no doubt long outlive the dying chain stores like Borders. With an outstanding fiction collection, as well as an awesome array of Australian non-fiction, the paperback also nabs some nifty numbers not available on these fine shores. Staying open way after dark, it is a beacon for book lovers with insomnia.
