The last of the second-hand bookshops 

Margery Clark writes: Re. "Rundle: farewell to the second-hand bookshop" (yesterday). How well you describe with haunting nostalgia the fate of the second-hand bookshop -- and also where am I to offload my books when I have a purge of my bookcase? There are two last bastions here in Sydney's inner west -- Bob Goold's in Newtown and the Gleebook second-hand bookshop on Glebe Point Road. The latter seems to be subsidised by the other shop selling the latest literary works, comments and exposes authored by David Marr, Paul Barry, MacCallum et al attracting a large gathering of similarly minded people.
