Avid Reader Bookshop

West End

A bookshop that hits all the right pages with locals and visitors alike, Avid Reader in West End is a gem of a place - from the top shelf eclectic array of books, CDs and DVDs for sale to the helpful clued-in staff, some of whom are writers themselves.

This cosy bohemian hub of literary excellence is a fave with writers who when not appearing at launches and signings tend to pop in.

Note that next door is Where the Wild Things Are, Avid Reader's sibling bookshop dedicated to younger readers, from babies to young adults, with a super selection of classic and contemporary picturebooks, storybooks and novels and highly knowledgeable staff to help pick the right book for any interest,
