  • Great small independent place in the centre of Penrith. Only children's books on the ground floor but plenty of other's upstairs. Found a couple of interesting reads to buy.

  • I could buy off Amazon. But then gems like this would disappear. The prices are absolutely fine and you’re able to browse a diverse selection of books and not just what an online retailer wants to...

  • This is a gem of an independent bookstore. I visited in October, the selection of books are carefully chosen, there is room upstairs to sit and browse awhile, staff very helpful, and I did some very useful early Christmas shopping.
  • We come to Penrith once a year and always pay a visit here to pick up a book or two for our daughter and sometimes for us. There are some treats for young and old within, accompanied with friendly, helpful service. A nice independent bookstore, which is something that has become all too hard to find in recent years.
