Ariel Booksellers (Sydney)

Bookshops do have a certain allure. I am not talking about the big ones but the little ones that come with very personalised service. Perhaps I harbour too many romantic notions from the movie "You've got mail ".
Love this Ariel booksellers at George Street which carries a selection of books for children and adults. Though not extensive, its range includes some classics that have stood the test of time. I was totally delighted to have found the children's book Madeline here, something that I have been searching for some time. Another big find for me is an Australian book "The Alphabet of the Human Heart - the A to Zen of Life", a beautifully illustrated book that reaffirms the good values of life.
From its little fringe curtains at the front of the shop to the old decorative wall tiles partially hidden behind the book cases, there is only one word I can think of to describe this little bookshop - charming.
