Bargain books for a good cause
If you are a keen reader or know someone who is, get down to House of Books!

second hand books
Loads of books!


Located next to the St John's Church at 508 Whitehorse Road Mitcham is a veritable treasure trove of second-hand books.

Although the House of Books is run by the church, it is not a religious bookshop. Books cover all subjects and are all donated. Staffed by volunteers, all proceeds from the sale of the books goes towards good works in the community.

The books are priced from $2.00 to $10.00. I picked up Junot Diaz's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Brief Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao in fabulous condition for just $4.00.

price list
Prices are very reasonable.


There is a great selection of Penguin Classics, children's books and general fiction, along with many non-fiction items on a wide range of topics.

Books, books and more books.


The shop is open Monday – Friday 10am – 4pm and Saturdays 10am – 1pm. Parking is available on the street outside and sales are on a cash only basis.
