I love books. Which was why I was surprised to find the price of books (and everything else) very expensive in Australia. But according to my dad, the high cost is due to the high wages everyone earns in Australia.
With the closure of Borders book store last June/July, Dymocks, together with Boffins and Elizabeth Second Hand Books, are among the few book stores left in this part of Australia.
Most Australians shop online for their books. The cost of buying books from Amazon UK plus shipping is still lower than buying off the shelf.
I am disappointed with the number of books offered in Dymocks. I wish they could carry more varieties.
