Brisbane's Best Bookstores

Home > Brisbane > Shopping
Published December 31st 2010
Make yourself a cup of tea, put your feet up and lose yourself in a good book. But don't waste your money at franchise bookstores, where bored staff flog overpriced merchandise instead, check out one of these boutique bookstores for a wider range of alternative literature and staff who can answer all your questions.

Riverbend Books (193 Oxford Street, Bulimba) is a bookstore and teahouse in a thriving location. This store has a good selection of books and staff offer recommendations for those looking for something new to read. The teahouse offers breakfast, lunch and dessert plus, in my opinion, the best hot chocolate to be had in Brisbane.

The Avid Reader (193 Boundary Street, West End) is a long time favourite of Brisbane bookworms. The bookstore and cafe offers great books, an interesting What's On calendar featuring events for adults and children and the Avid Eater Cafe, which serves breakfast, lunch and a wide selection of tea and coffee.

TLC Books (Shop 3, 50 Cambridge Parade) is a small bookstore, but what the venue lacks in size, they make up for in staff knowledge and enthusiasm. TLC Books hosts author talks and book clubs.

For second hand books, The Book Hunter (Shop 7, Station Mall, Burpengary) has it all a good selection, cheap prices, quality merchandise and helpful, knowledgeable staff. With prices starting at fifty cents, you can easily purchase your summer reading with the change in your coin purse.

Discover something new or relive an old favourite with help from Brisbane's best boutique bookstores.

There is also a really good book shop in Broadbeach on the Gold Coast which has all second hand books and they make you feel like those american movies where the kids go in the attic or something and find ancient things from the past. I do not remember the name of the book shop but it is near Subway, Australian Carvery and Big Chief.

Folio Books (133 Mary St. Cnr Edward St., City) is a serious omission.
