We are a secondhand bookshop in central Ballarat. We love books, and we like to do things a little differently. We have lots of books. Our shop is also used for special events, like music gigs and book signings. And we leave room for comfy chairs so you can peruse your books at leisure.
What you see on our shelves is only part of the picture. We have over 22,000 titles in our catalogue, which you can search on this website. Looking for a particular title or author? It might be easier to check out our catalogue and get us to locate the book for you. Or you could buy it direct from our online book shop.
Whatever your preference, we'll try to have a book for you. We have everything from rare and unusual treasures to bargain popular paperbacks. We also stock a selection of new titles by interesting local and regional authors.
A good book is the best cure for boredom and we’ll never tire of talking about books. We’d love you to visit our store or contact us through our website, or Facebook and Instagram. If you want to keep up with what's happening, why not join our fortnightly mail list? We hope to see you soon.
If you can’t locate that special particular book on our shelves, maybe we have it in our catalogue? Or maybe you can buy it from our online shop?
We currently have more than 22,000 titles in our inventory and we're always adding books online and in store.
If searching a catalogue isn't your thing, we're happy to look for you. We're here to help, so feel free to ask us.
If you have books you no longer want, we can give them a another life. No book in useable condition ever needs to end up in landfill. We buy books on a regular basis. If we can't use a book, we pass it on to one of the many charitable outlets in town.
