Better Read Than Dead, nestled in the heart of Newtown’s lively King Street, is one of Sydney’s most iconic and beloved independent bookshops — and Lonely Planet’s favourite Sydney bookshop. Better Read Than Dead has been an active member of Sydney’s literary community for over two decades, renowned for its enthusiastic support of authors and its keen engagement with wide-ranging literary events. 

 

Better Read Than Dead launched Better Read Tours in 2017. The acquisition of Bookshop Travel has led Better Read Literary Tours to combine Better Read Than Dead’s wealth of bookish knowledge with the expertise of this trusted educational tour company to provide our travellers with a programme of thoughtfully curated, fully escorted tours to the world’s most fascinating literary destinations.
