Spouses Patrick and Sukyi McMahon recently realized their dream of owning their own bookshop by purchasing a former bookmobile that had served for 25 years. The 1987 vehicle will hit certain spots in Austin on a routine basis. Other stops will be more spontaneous, so customers are encouraged to follow 5th Dimension on social media. The moving store is capable of carrying 5,000 books and specializes in science fiction and fantasy. They stock the truck by drawing on the 100,000-book collection they purchased from the estate of the late Dr. John N. Marx, a well-known collector of science fiction works. They also carry out-of-print T Shirts, Go Local Austin loyalty cards, and other unique items for this most unique of bookstores. 1977410_967060983307521_7035825298736287575_n10730879_967061076640845_2049007285574529197_n Interior shots
