It is hard to believe that Christmas is nearly upon us. I thought I would share some good online bookstores in case you are thinking of ordering some special books to fill Christmas stockings. I like supporting 'bricks and mortars' bookshops and we are lucky enough to have some great ones locally; The Lane Claremont, Millpoint Caffe Bookshop South Perth and Dymocks in both Claremont and Subiaco, but online shopping can also be very handy.
Here are a few of my favourites:
A children's book specialist based in South Australia.
The Kids Bookshop
A beautiful Australian online store that recommends books based on age and gender.
Leo and Bella
This is not a bookstore, but in the 'kids interior' section of the site, it has a few pages of the most divine books. Some of my absolutely treasured books have been found here.
Again, this is not a bookstore, but if you can make it past some of the most delightful wooden toys and home wares, you will find a section with books that are just gorgeous and perfectly chosen.
This is a large online shop with $6.95 shipping.
This is UK based, but has most books and free shipping.
