If you are located elsewhere in Australia, we offer shipping through either Sendle or Australia Express Post. Please be aware due to the weight of the books costs can vary and in some cases may not seem affordable! This is an unfortunate situation but one we can’t really get around.


Have you seen our mobile bookstore out and about? On the Road Books can often be found literally on the road, making our way to markets and about town. If you’d like to keep up with where our mobile bookstore can be found you can follow us on Instagram.

If you would like to book our mobile bookstore to visit your market or event we’d love to hear from you.

why we do this

We’re committed to giving great books another life in the hands of readers.

We aim to find new homes for secondhand books which may otherwise languish unappreciated on op-shop shelves or (horror of all horrors) end up in landfill if their original readers don’t have space to store them.

We’re especially passionate about Australian literature, and try to maintain stock of up-and-coming writers as well as a substantial catalogue of young adult and children’s books.
