Riverbend Books Pop Up Store
Be quick! The Riverbend Pop Up Store won't be around for long

There's nothing better than browsing an Independent bookshop and choosing some good books. However, I confess I often have an inner struggle between buying cheap online from one of the multinational booksellers (and feeling guilty) and paying a premium to support the fantastic local experience. So I was really excited to discover Riverbend Books Pop Up store on Oxford Street in Bulimba this morning, which is selling excess stock at bargain prices.

Riverbend Books Pop Up Lucky Dip
Try a Lucky Dip bag for $3

It's the perfect place to buy some last minute Christmas gifts and stocking fillers. There is something for everyone with a wide range of well known books, including Nigella Lawson cookbooks and Ian McEwan fiction. I was particularly impressed with the range of fantastic Kids books.

Riverbend Books Pop Up Teens Table
Fill a bag with books from the Teens' Table for $15

There are some serious bargains to be had. Why not fill a bag from the Teens' table for $15 or pick a Lucky Dip bag for $3?.

Christmas Stocking Fillers Books
Great stocking fillers ideas in the Childrens section

I spent $30 and came out with an armful of childrens' books - that's my Christmas shopping sorted. My best bargains were "Counting Birds" by Alice Melvin in hardback for $7 (normally $29.95) and "The Gruffalo's Child and Other Songs" Songbook in hardback including CD for $10.

Bargain Books
My bargain book selection

The Pop Up Store is located opposite the cinema on Oxford Street, in the old Harcourts office. It is open from 10am until 7pm daily and will stay open until 9.30pm this Thursday 20th, Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd December. The store should stay open throughout December but best get there quickly to avoid disappointment. It's much more fun than ordering online.
