At North Shore's beloved independent bookshop
you will find something sure to please.

Whether you are seeking a good novel, a pleasing mix of non-fiction – gardening, architecture, decorating, travel, fashion, art/design, self-help, food/cookery, health, business – perhaps coffee-table books, or books for children, we have created the best possible ever-changing mosaic of books chosen with our readers’ interests in mind.

Our online presence is a reflection of our shop, it is not a download of all publishers files as seen on many online sites, who infer they are holding stock of all the titles that they list !!  

[ A tip when checking out our on-line offering - if a title is listed as 'Usually ships in 3-6 days'  it will be an older title that we will need to order in for you. If the title is listed "On Our Shelves" it means it is in store awaiting you ]

We feature only a taste of the books we stock in the shop online - so please ask if there is a book you are looking for.
The speed of our procurement of specific customer requests is frequently praised.

Check out our New Release pages [under Shop On-line] for a newsletter-style look at the more interesting latest titles we have in store.

If we receive your online order before 2pm – and the title is listed as “On our shelves” – it will be despatched the same day, gift-wrapped as well if you so wish.
Orders over $80.00 within Auckland [Orewa to Pukekohe, excluding rural delivery] are freight free.

We would love to see you in store as well. We are open 7 days a week [excluding Public Holidays]
Happy browsing
