Gould’s Book Arcade

Gould’s Book Arcade

An absolute treasure. Gould’s is a Sydney institution and a bit of a bête noire
for anyone with OCD—seemingly zillions of old books, videocassettes, vinyl albums and magazine spill from every available shelf in a manner that can best be described as eclectic. But that’s the fun of Gould’s. You walk in with no idea what you’ll find, certain whatever it is will remain a delightful surprise.
