Crow Books sits in the hub of the Victoria Park shopping precinct, an area filled with restaurants, cafes, curio shops and stores selling colourful gourmet stuff in fancy jars.
- Open Days:Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday
Crow Books has extremely friendly opening hours, retailing seven days a week from mid morning till 9 -10pm or so (check the website for specific days), which is great going for a relatively small independent bookstore.
They encourage extended browsing to a hip soundtrack (they were playing TV On The Radio while I was there). Crow Books would be great fun to visit at night after a meal at a nearby restaurant, which is just the right time to revel in the atmosphere of rows of books and weird animal posters containing strange aphorisms.
Oh, and there’s a somewhat macabre crow overseeing proceedings as well.
