A bit about us

Bent Books is a secondhand bookshop that has been an icon of the vibrant West End community in inner-city Brisbane for 28 years. We have a diverse collection of quality titles and despite the name, the books are all in excellent condition, categorised carefully and beautifully arranged.

If you’re looking to sell us books, please email through a photo or two of the books you’re looking to sell (in stacks or on the shelves) with the spines visible and we can tell you which ones we’d take, how much we’d give you for them, and when we’re able to buy them.

Pop in if you’re in the ‘hood – we’re open 7 days a week – or drop us a line in the contact box below if you can’t make it to the shop and we’ll get back to you straight away.

Tour the shop

Browse through Bent Books without leaving your living room!

Just click on the image below to enter the store via Google Street View and browse til your hearts content. (Please note this was done a few years ago and stock changes rapidly, so we don’t necessarily still have any of those books but have got plenty of freshies!) Unfortunately no one has invented an app to emulate the smell of a second hand book store, so if you want the real experience you’ll have to come and visit us!
