Great books don’t have a use-by-date.


Not sure of what sort of book you want?

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.


Do you run book clubs?

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 also run book related events, workshops and discussions. The best way to stay up to date for those is to check the site, or follow us on Facebook and Instagram.


Why no online shop?

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.


Can you post me items?

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.


I can’t find the book I’m looking for, what should I do?

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.


I’m stuck for ideas and/or need a book recommendation. Can you help?

We’d love to! Pop by the store, call (02) 4441 8585 or email us at info@boobookonowen.com.au — 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.
