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 selecting a childrens book. Staff sent me to the back of the shop to "the children's book buyer". Staff was just plainread 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 book genre that you can think of and whilst their prices may be a tad higher than other bookstores in the vicinity,read 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 just along Glebe Point Rd.
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.

With online ordering of books and online reading of books on the increase it seems bookstores are going out of fashion. I sincerely hope that little gems like this one survive the online onslaught. There are many great bookstores around Glebe and Newtown but this is one of my favourites. You can easily lose yourself in here, perusing interesting titles and soaking up the quiet, thoughtful atmosphere. The staff are also lovely in this store. I have had some on occasionsread more
