Echuca Book Store

Situated on the Murray River which separates Victoria from New South Wales, Echuca is predominantly a tourist town renowned for its many historic paddle steamers and water sports.

It also has a couple of book stores including the Read Heeler Book Shop.  My parents often visit Echuca and whenever they do there's always the obligatory phone call from this store to list the store's Bond inventory over the phone.  Occasionally they mention a book I'm missing and purchase it for me.
- Read Heeler Book Shop (second hand) - This store is easily recognised in the old High Street section of Echuca by the Harley Davidson motor bike parked out the front.  This pristine condition bike is the owner's proud possession. David Engstrom has operated this book store for 15 years and during that time has seen thousands of people browsing or buying books in his store.  As well as a regular selection of Bond books in stock David's main focus is on Australian books and books on hunting, fishing and shooting.  He also has a large selection of children's books.  The shop is well worth a visit when you're next in Echuca. (Thanks Dad for the write-up and my wife for pointing to the card below).
