Boobook is a boutique collection of the most interesting, popular and ‘never want to put down’ books. We pride ourselves on the handpicked selection of stories and miscellany on offer.
We love helping people find the perfect book or gift. As a haven for all things quirky and unique, we’re sure to have something for everyone!
Boobook On Owen is an independent bookshop, located on the main street of Huskisson in Jervis Bay. We are a member of Indiebound and The Australian Booksellers Association (ABA).
Rummage around in our recycled selection of second-hand general fiction, crime, biography, children’s books and obscure non-fiction books. It’s a great way to uncover an unexpected story bargain.
We do from time to time run book club meet-ups, spaces are limited though so we can’t always welcome new members. If you’re interested in participating in future clubs or to find out more, get in touch.
We thought about an online shop, we even have one in the background that helps us manage things, but … an online shop just isn’t as great as the real thing. We put a lot of effort into our real-world store and the selection of things within it — so we really just want to see you come through the door.
If you really can’t make it in for a visit, feel free to send an enquiry or give us a call (we prefer the latter) about the wonderful book you’re looking for and we’ll do our best to help you.
Absolutely. If, for whatever reason, you can’t make it to the shop please contact us to arrange purchase, shipping or delivery of your special items.
If it’s not in our stock, we can always order in newer release items (arrival times will vary). If it’s not a recent release, the book you’re searching for might be out-of-print … in that case, we do have some other options for tracking down particular publications (no promises), so just sing out and we’ll do our best to track down the item you’re after, or put you on the path to finding it.
We’d love to! Pop by the store, call (02) 4441 8585 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org — telling us about the kind of book you’re looking for (or the person you’re buying for) and we’ll do our best to uncover suitable recommendations.
