Please note that the Carlton shop will be open from 10am to 9pm on Labour Day, Monday 10 March.
Readings Carlton is a Melbourne icon, and has long been a gathering point for the Australian literary scene. It began life as a tiny stand-alone shop in 1969. The growing business moved to larger premises on 388 Lygon Street in 1982, making its final move to 309 Lygon Street, where it stands today, in 1998.
We pride ourselves on our knowledgeable staff and exceptional customer service. Experts in music, film, books and kids’ books are always available to answer your queries and handle special orders. Readings Carlton was awarded Independent Bookseller of the Year in 1998, 2001 and 2009.
