Workplace Description:

At Avid Reader we always try to keep the best books in each genre on the shelves, including literature, classics, children's, travel, politics, cooking, history, biography, self-help, environment, queer, business, health, sex, and parenting. The newest titles are as tempting as lollies in a candy store, but nothing beats the all-time great reads. For this reason we carry a mix of new release and backlist titles that have stood the test of time.

Run by knowledgable staff members, Avid Reader specialises in personal service and provides an extensive special order system, book club advice and discounts, gift recommendations, free gift wrapping, and gift vouchers. We have frequent in-store events including book launches, signings, various book clubs and introductory nights for fledgling and established book clubs. Our renowned café serves Toby’s Estate coffee and teas and a selection of sweets and savouries.

Avid Reader also supports a range of community activities.
