A nose in the book is a massive antidote to eyes on the screen.

Have you ever been captivated by a beloved library book, borrowing it multiple times, wishing you could keep it forever? Now is your chance, with over 160,000 books on display at Book Bazaar, awaiting their forever home, refreshed each week with a donation of several thousand books by the State Library of Western Australia. Benefit from the vast choice of good quality and unique books at Book Bazaar, which bookshops bound by commercial considerations would find hard to equal.

Friday, August 30, 2019 from 8:30am to 5:00pm
Saturday, August 31, 2019 from 10:00am to 2:00pm

All books are easily accessible and categorised.

All books are half price (except already reduced books), including, fiction, non-fiction, large print, children's, vintage, and encyclopedias. While all books are easily accessible and categorised, you never knows what you may find as you flip through the books in the hope of uncovering unavailable or out of print editions as well as current titles or your favourite library book.

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, from this distinctive bookshop.

Many vintage treasures are to be found by a resolute browser.

Massive music collection

Book Bazaar has a massive exclusively sourced music collection with many distinctive albums, not available elsewhere. A selection of several thousand CDs will be available for sale at $2.00 each. These CDs are not included in the half price book sale, as they are already at a bargain price.

Feel free to browse

Book Bazaar enjoys the perfect environment for a relaxing browse through pre-loved library and other selected books. Explore the under table displays, sitting on small stools, or the floor (if that is your style) and choose your take-home 'forever' book. If you cannot find what you are looking at this unique and massive bookshop, then I do not know where you will find it.

Let the children choose

With so many exciting and unique books available, the options for 'screen time' have never been more accessible or enjoyable. Once hooked, their nose will be in the book, instead of eyes on the screen.

This section should provide a few childhood memories to share with your children, and some unique children's books to choose from, many not available elsewhere.

No stress, you are covered

Held in air-conditioned comfort (just right for those cooler days) with toilet and bathroom facilities available. A great boon for those with little ones (or anyone else), who seem to want to 'go' at the most inopportune time. The café on site will be open until 3:00pm on Friday only, where you can fuel up between rounds of browsing.

Free parking

Ample FREE parking (please follow signs), with all facilities wheelchair friendly, ensures easy and hassle-free access. No city street parking or meters to worry about, so feel free to browse as long as you like.

Helping hands

Friendly volunteers are available to guide you, as with such an enormous collection of books, it can become a little overwhelming. If you love books and people, becoming a volunteer may be just up your 'aisle'. Send an email to, or call 9381 0193, if you are interested.

Relax and take your time

Book Bazaar is normally open Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 4:00pm with great bargains. However, Friday, August 30 and Saturday, August 31 is the time to take advantage of their half price offer.

Follow the signs

When arriving at 10 Selby Street, Shenton Park, turn off into a little (privately owned, by Alinea) road called Ellis Griffiths Avenue. The ParaQuad building is about 300m along Ellis Griffiths Avenue. Then follow the signs for a perfect parking spot.
