Book Stores Need Love Too

The Internet Is Ancient HistoryThe Devonport Vintage Bookshop is everything a used book store should be. It’s crammed full of beautiful old books, and beautiful new ones too. There are rare books, and a dedicated poetry section. There’s hilariously misplaced signs.

It’s also closing down.

Readers, take yourself out on the town and visit the book stores in your area. Supporting local businesses puts money back into your community. Small business owners will love you for it and you might find a gem. I’m guilty of big-box-book-shopping myself but it’s one of my new year’s resolutions to change that. Today, for example, I picked up a book on embroidery and The Encyclopaedia Of Basic Craft Techniques (1973) in case I want to take up leatherwork, learn to weave, or rub-dye plastic. Okay, so I bought it for the pictures. But it’s brilliant, and they don’t have it at the Big Box Book Store.

Aucklanders, while it’s still open, you can get 50% off everything at the Devonport Vintage Bookshop – but the time to go to your local book store is while it’s still open, to help it thrive.

Question time – do you have a favourite book store? Tell us about it in the comments.

Last chance to buy books before Christmas!

Well my lovelies, this is your last chance to buy books from us before Christmas. From mid-next week we will be on a selling hiatus until mid-January.

No more chances for some spectacular or totally flippant reading material before you go on holiday! What will you do when the days are hot and there’s no internet connection?

Lots of our new books have been reduced in price too, so take the hassle out of Secret Santa, and buy a book.

BookieMonster’s Moving – and You Get the Sale!

I know I’ve tweeted this rather consistently recently… but BookieMonster’s on the move (or at least BookieMonster and Mr and Little Monster. Oh, and BookieMonster Kitty the 2nd. BookieMonster’s Henchperson is staying put).

We’re leaving Auckland behind to luxuriate in the small-town gorgeousness that is Te Aroha (East Waikato). If you’re nearby say hi! If you’re passing through after Christmas say hi!

Or just say hi, because the interwebs is everywhere!

Aaaaanyway what this means for you, dear readers, is it’s sale time! We don’t want to be lugging boxes and boxes and boxes of books around the country. Think of my friends and family who are helping us move – don’t make them carry lots of books! Don’t be cruel!

Help our friends and family from just $1 a day!

To make it easy and enticing for you to help us get rid of all these books we’ve made them mega cheap. Cheaper than a budgie in a box. (No, I don’t know what that means, yes, I did just make it up.)
