About Us

We first opened our 'bricks & mortar' store in November 2004 in Canberra city. After three years, we moved to a larger and more attractive space, where we continued to operate successfully for another five years. In August 2012, the rise and rise of ebooks and the resultant loss of a large chunk of our customer base to digital books, convinced us to close our physical store and switch over to an on-line only business. This coming November will mark fifteen years in business.
