At the best of times, reading is one of the greatest ways to feed your head and heart. But as it grows increasingly likely that we'll be spending a whole heap more time indoors in the coming months, those transporting pageturners might just become our lifeline to the world outside.
While we may not be able to explore the highlights of Sydney in person, for the time being at least, we can still see her sights and hear her voices by diving headlong into a good book.
To that end, we spoke to the teams at some of our favourite independent bookstores and asked them to share their favourite Sydney-centric reads.
RECOMMENDED: The Sydney bookshops that offer delivery.
