  • Open Days:Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday

Description

Boffins Bookshop is an Australian owned, independent bookseller offering customers an eclectic range of technical, practical, special interest and fiction books.

We first opened our doors in Perth’s CBD in 1989, and since then have grown to become the leading technical bookshop in Western Australia, winning the Australian Book Industry Association's award for Best Specialist Bookseller six times running.

At Boffins we endeavour to stock a comprehensive selection of new and bestselling books across a wide range of categories from not only the world's best known and major publishers but many smaller publishers specialising in niche topics (browse our departments for the full range).

Because it is not possible to carry every book available at any given time, we offer a special order service, using our many years’ experience to track down those hard-to-find titles for our customers.

At Boffins Bookshop you will find staff who have a passion for books, along with a commitment to helping readers like you find exactly what they are looking for.

Crow Books has extremely friendly opening hours, retailing seven days a week from mid morning till 9 -10pm or so (check the website for specific days), which is great going for a relatively small independent bookstore.

They encourage extended browsing to a hip soundtrack (they were playing TV On The Radio while I was there). Crow Books would be great fun to visit at night after a meal at a nearby restaurant, which is just the right time to revel in the atmosphere of rows of books and weird animal posters containing strange aphorisms.

Oh, and there’s a somewhat macabre crow overseeing proceedings as well.

  • Bookshops:Independent Bookshop
  • Open Days:Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday

Description

Planet has had a long and celebrated history on Beaufort Street. In December 1990 Planet first opened the doors after the metamorphosis of its predecessor Topshow Video. A few years later, in 96', Planet added music and film sales to its portfolio.

Planet Books was the latest edition in 2006. Splitting at the seams with books, collectables and giftware, with titles spanning all genres, it’s Mt. Lawley’s best store for the literary folk in Perth. No matter what kind you’re into, Planet caters to the alternate and the masses. Importing from publishers far and wide, including Harpers, Phaidon, Taschen and Penguin, Planet Books has Perth’s best range.

Although the video and music counterparts are no longer, the Planet ethos remains the same. Owners Haydn and Anthea Robinson had a vision to create Perth’s left of centre, go-to store from the beginning and continue to practice what they preach.

In September 2016, they also acquired Northside; Northbridge's answer for the book curious. The area has a vibrancy and quirk that's unlike any other Perth suburb. It was not a question of if Planet Books would venture there, but a matter of when. Watch this space...
