Where is the best second hand book shop in Brisbane?


There’s oodles of second hand bookshops in Brisbane city, and the suburbs too. Where is your favourite store?

They may specialise in second hand textbooks, or perhaps a good second hand cook book. It could be they’re a fantastic Australian bookshop.

Let us know where to get used books in Brisbane.


  1. Vinnies at 7 Proe St, Newstead ( just off Doggett St from James St ) plus open all day Sat and Sun. Good range paperbacks very cheap $1 – $3 but best of all those hardcover modern chef Cookbooks $4 – $10 in really good condition.

  2. I also vote for Bent Books in West End. Not only do they have a fabulous selection to loose yourself in, the staff have always been helpful, friendly and fun!

  3. Mt Gravatt Bookshop, Carrara St, Mt Gravatt East. Fine collection, helpful staff, easy to park.
