About Good Reading

Good Reading was established in 1991. In early 2013, I downsized from a shop which spanned a block and two stories to a largish house which resembles a rabbit warren. There are at approximately 40,000 titles, including over 10,000 books in Italian, French, German, Modern Greek, Latin and classical Greek., most of which have not yet been catalogued.

I also have a very large Theology section, and a substantial cookery and Australian History one.

Please contact me if there is a specific title you are chasing as it may be languishing on the shelf uncatalogued.
