Serendipity Books is opposite the West Leederville railway station and we see the shop every time we travel to Perth city centre on the train. We have been meaning to go there for ages and finally called in last week. The shop is an antiquarian and second hand bookstore. Old books line all the walls as far as the ceiling and if you want something in particular you may have to ask the sales assistant to climb a ladder to get it for you.
We settled for looking through the second hand books “on sale” at ground level and found two books by often overlooked Australian women writers – Catherine Spence and Cristina Stead.
