A quick trip through Auckland last week was the inspiration for this paragraph, a brief shout-out to one of the best bookstores I’ve come across. Unity Books only has two locations, this one plus another in Wellington, but their reputation is huge. In a world where massive chain booksellers offer office supplies, toys and games, Unity Books stands out for their simplicity. This place sells books, nothing else. Not even a café, although you’ll almost certainly find something worth reading over your morning flat white. If your travels ever lead you to the land of the long white cloud, be sure to stop in and have a browse for yourself.
