Melbourne Central is a shopping mall based in the city of Melbourne and is pretty awesome.
Even more so recently with the introduction of ‘The Little Library.”
The Little Library is an area where you can borrow books for free. It’s an honour system. If you borrow a book, you are expected to return it, or replace it with another book.
It’s pretty awesome. I love going in there a couple of times a week to see what they have. Most of the books are romance novels with amazing pictures of Fabio and what not on them but there are a few good books in there. I’ve seen a few 50 Shades of Grey in there, some Kardashian memoirs and a few other novelty books such as “How to tell a woman by her handbag” type books.
There isn’t a tonne of room but the shelves remain pretty packed most of the time.
I love it. I think it’s such a brilliant idea, especially since I seem to feel like I’m one of the few people who likes to physically hold a book when reading, so it’s nice to know there are others out there!
