Readings St Kilda
Having traded on Acland Street for close to twenty years, previously as the independent Cosmos, our St Kilda store is one of the community’s longest-running businesses. Our selection includes a wide range of books by Australian and international authors, encompassing literature, history, art and design, travel, cookery, children’s books and more. A diverse range of popular DVDs and CDs are stocked, with new release vinyl records a specialty.
In addition, Readings St Kilda supports numerous independent publishers such as Affirm Press, Going Down Swinging, Sleepers and many other locally produced journals. Local writers and artists are encouraged to leave consignment stock of their work and become involved in the various book launches, book clubs, exhibitions and music performances each month.
By tracing these connections between art, literature, music and film, we hope to promote conversation between readers and arts lovers in the St Kilda community and beyond.
