This Weeks Topic: Favourite Bookstore
Ahh, the bookstore. Next to the library, it is one of my favourite places to go.
But which one is my favourite?
Well, there are 4 places that sell books near where I live, and only 2 of those are actual bookstores. These are:
Big W (other store, but sells books)
Target (other store, but sell books)
*Note: these stores are all in the same shopping centre
Big W and Target are definitely the cheapest, however, the range is usually pathetic. And over the past year it’s progressively gotten worse. And they don’t have rewards programs.
QBD similar to Dymocks, but it’s newer, so I have less experience with them.
So, as you’ve probably guessed, my favourite of all the bookstores where I live is Dymocks!!
What’s so great about Dymocks?
1. The rewards program
They’ve recently included a second tier, which I qualified, like, as it came into existence…I earn so many points now…
2. Store Location
There are 2 stores which I frequently visit: one near where I live, and one literally across the road from where I go to uni. I’m there a lot. (It’s gotten to the point where some people at the store don’t even ask for my name when I’m ordering books…they already know it).
3. NEW BOOKS!
Dymocks also gets books as soon as they come out. Always a plus.
4. Good range
Dymocks has a great collection of books. And the price is pretty good too.
5. The price stickers come off
This is the only bookstore I know of where the price stickers come off easily, without leaving any of that horrible stickiness. Like, seriously, they’re wonderful.
So, yeah. That’s my favourite bookstore.
Ooh, that bookshop sounds awesome. You’re all making me jealous!

That bookshop does sound brilliant. I’m from the UK, the only one I have really heard of is Target, and that’s because of TV. I think ASDA hear is similar in a way, sells other stuff but also does books for really cheap, even brand new ones. I LOVE IT! Didn’t even think to add it to my post though. Here’s my answer, it’s all in the second half of the post! 🙂
From what I can recall of when I was in England (about 6 years ago, I think), your Target is somewhat different from ours…I may be wrong…it’s been a while.
Regardless, while the books are definitely cheaper there, the range is pretty useless, and I like to get points on my Dymocks card, so I mostly buy from there.
