Where do you start?

Book Bazaar Mammoth Extended Hours Sale
Help is always close at hand to navigate the huge range of books.

How often have you wanted to take home a bag of books from bookshops, but they were just too expensive? Now is your chance, I doubt you would find another place displaying so many quality books with such a multitude of titles (perhaps a few hidden unique treasures).

Notwithstanding clearly marked sections and categories, you never know what may turn up as you flip through the books in the hope of uncovering unavailable or out of print editions as well as current titles.

Do not rush, but...

Browse as long as you wish, but if you spot that treasure, seize it with both hands. There are no rain checks or sourcing an extra copy from the supplier, at this distinctive bookshop.

Old/collectable books all at half price

Banners point the way to Book Bazaar

Arriving at 10 Selby Street, Shenton Park, turn off into a little (privately owned, by Spine & Limb Foundation) road called Ellis Griffiths Avenue. The ParaQuad building is about 300m along Ellis Griffiths Avenue.
