Abbey’s Bookshop is fantastic resource for all manner of books, many of which are now available online. But it’s well worth the effort of dropping by their York Street store, if like us you live and breath the book-buying experience. The store has been around since 1968, and describes itself as “an Aladdin’s cave for readers.” Their ‘Galaxy Books’ section is of particular note, offering thousands of titles in the fantasy and science fiction genres. For those who’d prefer to read in a language other than English, they also have an extensive variety of books in languages such as Chinese, German, Italian, French, Spanish and Japanese, too.
