At the best of times, reading is one of the greatest ways to feed your head and heart. And after spending a whole heap more time indoorslast year, those transporting pageturners became one of our best lifelines to the world outside.
If you're still feeling nervy about exploring 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.
