Basically it’s a bookshop, and one that doesn’t have anything all that spectacular about it. Mind you, being a bookshop is always going to grab my attention, but unfortunately there didn’t seem to be all that much that really want me to hang around for too long. Sure, there were a number of interesting books here, and a good selection of fiction,read more
I have signed up to True local just to make this complaint. Whilst I agree that Gleebooks has a great selection, and reasonable prices I was shocked at how bad the service was when I visited the other day. I stood at the front counter waiting to be acknowledged by the staff member standing directly in front of me. Eventually, after being ignored, I asked for help in selectingread more
I would have to agree with the introduction of the technological age sadly good bookstores are becoming rare. Gleebooks is that type of old school cosy bookstore with a twist of quirkiness that just grabs you from the minute you walk past. It definitely does have the "Glebe feel" about it but most of the stores on Glebe Point Road do. They have every type of bookread more
Gleebooks is a great book shop that never fails to deliver something just a little bit different. I don't want to imagine a world without places like this. The internet and chains have a place, but for me the real book rules. Let's support independents! Highly recommended, great stock, helpful staff, and wonderful coffee with which to browse through my new purchases justread more
I just love this book shop. I rarely fail to find exact what I need, but I also love the adventure of browsing and always come away with some territic books I didn't know existed. I love the slightly ramshackle shelves, the Glebe atmosphere, the helpful staff and even the papery smell. I so hope shops like this survive online reading and the big chains.
