Bent Books is a secondhand bookshop that has been an icon of the vibrant West End community in inner-city Brisbane for over 16 years. We have a diverse collection of quality titles and unusual treasures (over 30000 of ‘em last time we counted!). Despite the name, the books are all in excellent condition, categorised carefully and beautifully arranged.
We love travelling almost as much as we love books and keep nearly the full range of new Lonely Planet guides, mostly as an excuse to talk to people about their fabulous journeys.
Between the three of us, our staff have over 25 years experience selling books. We’re a friendly bunch and we’re more than happy to help you find what you’re after. As well as selling books, we buy and trade, so if you have some you no longer require, give us a bell.
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.
About books and other Bent stuff
just put together a slightly-dodgy day of the dead/halloween themed window. *skeleton guy is not for sale, you’ll have to go to mexico to get your own. (we will, however, take offers for the pumpkin in the bottom left hand corner)
need a li’l post-election pick-me-up? why not buy yourself some lovely books? if spirituality is your bag, our section just went from tragically empty to brimming full. we’ve also got a fresh batch of graphic lit, comics and manga if they’re what floats your boat….
