'Hey! What does it take to have a thriving, real book shop these days, in a small town when bookshops are becoming scarce even in cities? How about their carefully-curated stock of fine, local reading matter, for a start? A fair number of visitors to The Alice do get the distinct impression that they'd better start reading what the locals have written (yes, Alice has the highest number of educated cognoscenti per head outside of Canberra!) From historical to the outrageous. poetry to pictorial to Pitjantjatjara, browsing this jewel amongst bookshops will be frustratingly cut short by your impending flight departure. My advice is grab just two books and slip in one of Red Kangaroo's bookmarks so you can order more from home. (Google Business Review, No Reply, 23 October 2016)'
