Dymocks 424 George St  Beautiful and interesting finds plus event info from Dymocks 424 George St.

Our #staffpickthursday is from Georgia this week. She's chosen A FIELD GUIDE TO SPIDERS OF AUSTRALIA by Robert Whyte and Greg Anderson. Georgia studied spiders for Uni. She thinks they're "cute"... "This book is 451 pages and over 1300 photos of wonderful. 
I know the bigger hairy spiders aren't to everyone's liking, but there is so much diversity and character to be found within the spider family tree. From the Golden Orb-weavers with their complex giant golden webs, the Net-casting spiders that literally catch their prey with a silk net they lunge with, and let's not forgot the unbelievably adorable Jumping spiders - I'm not kidding. With names like Sparklemuffin, the Masked Peacock and Kissing-birds, how can you not find them equally fascinating and beautiful". Thanks Georgia! 🕸️ { #spiderlove #spidergirl #spiders

This could possibly be our most eclectic top 5 yet! No surprise that 91 STOREY TREEHOUSE took the top spot last week... {#kidlit #finance #fiction #poetry #newrelease #bookstagram #instabook #bookworm #bibliophile #toberead #amreading }

Tim Ross will be at Dymocks Sydney on Saturday, September 2 having a chat and signing copies of The Rumpus Room.

I have a pen. I can write something nice for your Dad on the inside cover. Head to the link on my bio for the magic.

Did you know that Dymocks Sydney first opened 138 years ago? In 1879 we were around the corner on Market St; and in 1922 the Dymock family purchased the site of the Royal Hotel in George St where the Dymocks flagship store is today.
Pop in tomorrow on LOVE YOUR BOOKSHOP DAY and have a chat to any of the well-read people of Dymocks about your next great read, your new favourite book could be just around the corner!

We reckon Aussie bookshops are GREAT, so we wanna throw them a party! Show your local bookshop some love by paying them a visit on Aug 12. You can catch up with your fav bookseller, gab with other book lovers & maybe purchase a sneaky book or two. We've also got a sneaky suspicion that there'll be a few other surprises...One thing's for sure - it's going to be an EPIC celebration of everything that makes bookshops so special. 📚❤️

Our #staffpickthursday is from Ray this week. He's chosen HOUSE OF LEAVES by Mark Z. Danielewske... "What to say about this book? It wasn't one of the most rewarding books I've ever read. It is one of the most brain frying books in existence. The text changes and dances across the page as 3 stories mix into one. Set aside a few weeks for this one & then grab a couple of mind candy books to recover from the brain buster that is this cult classic". Errrm, thanks Ray! { #staffpick #fantasynovel #scifi #bookstagram #instabook #igreads #booklover #booknerdigans #bookworm #bookaddict #bibliophile #toberead #amreading }
