#ThisIsMyBookstore, what’s yours?

Every bookstore has a story, and we want to tell them all. Submit a photo of your favorite (or tag it #ThisIsMyBookstore on your own Tumblr blog) and tell us why it’s special. Are the staff picks strangely knowing? Is there just something about the smell?

We will share the strongest #ThisIsMyBookstore stories every Friday to spread the word about these important places. Join in, and maybe you’ll discover a new spot to spend the weekend.

"There’s the three “men of Middle Eastern appearance” who were detained by police at a football match because someone thought the way they were checking their phones was “suspicious”.



There’s the Muslim guy who was detained by the cops for filming in the Melbourne CBD (read his account over the The Drum if you read nothing else; it’s mildly terrifying).
There’s that mosque in far north Queensland that was vandalised, that mosque in Brisbane that was vandalised, those Muslim ladies in Queensland being told to “fuck off back to your own country” and having coffee thrown on them, and that carload of white guys on the Gold Coast who threatened to behead a brown person in the street because they thought he was Muslim (seriously, Queensland, you are not covering yourself in glory on this one).
There’s the guy who walked into an Islamic school in Sydney armed with a knife, forcing children to be locked inside their classrooms and hide under their desks.
There’s the spat-upon mum, the kicked baby’s pram, the vandalised car and the pig’s head on a spike — the pig’s head on a spike — that have been reported in WA. There’s the rape and death threats being made against Muslim women, and the indifference it’s been met with.”
