Why locals love it

Gleebooks is a bastion of independence, servicing inquisitive minds for decades. It outlived (and outwitted) those bricks and mortar behemoths, withstanding the slings and arrows of the Amazonian militia. But they didn't work alone; locals have fortified the place with their insatiable commitment to brain food. And they'll protect it at any cost.

Why you should visit it

They're the leading independent bookseller in Sydney for a reason. Several actually, but here are the top three: 1) They stock a mind-bending array of books, satisfying the most specialised nerds; 2) If they don't have it on site there's nothing the crew can't find; 3) They regularly host nerd porn events: book launches, symposiums etc.

Special tip

Sappho Books is next door, with tonnes of juicy, secondhand titles... and a wine bar! Glebe Markets is on in the school across the road every Saturday
