Description

★ Uncover one of the world's great literary cities ★ In 2008, Melbourne, Australia was named the second UNESCO City of Literature, due to its rich history of writing, its vibrant literary festivals, and its plentiful number of bookshops, publishers, writers, libraries and literary monuments.

Whether you're based in Australia or in far-flung foreign climes, this app will take you on an inspiring journey down Melbourne's literary byways. You'll encounter great writers and entertaining books at every turn, be they fiction or non-fiction.

This app can be used in many ways. On a rainy day, curl up in a armchair at home and read about Melbourne's fine writers, or use the list of books set in the city to compile your next library list. When the weather improves, head out on Melbourne's streets to discover literary locations, funky bookshops, forgotten monuments and cool "hip lit" cafes. If you're impatient to get your hands on these new books, there are links to buy titles from online booksellers.

This guide cannot possibly be a comprehensive encyclopaedia of everything literary Melbourne has to offer, but I hope it will provide a solid basis for heading off on your own word-fuelled explorations.

(NB If you enjoy this app, you might also consider buying the companion app "Melbourne Historical, " created by Tim Richards.)
