About
For The Passionate Reader

A heaven for book lovers in the midst of the busy Brisbane city centre, we have been engaging and satisfying our customers every need since 2009. Our store features every genre imaginable – from sci-fi to fantasy to travel – so that anyone can walk through our doors and leave with a perfect match.

But we don’t just sell books, we go to the ends of the earth to give them the best possible in-store experience. Everything that we do is based on our absolute passion for reading and how we can pass it onto others.

" The people here are so lovely. We all get along really well and its such a great place to work!"

Workplace Culture
Young But Engaged
It goes without saying that our culture is all about a love of reading and our staff all have their favourite categories and areas of expertise. Everyone is deeply aware of each other’s strengths and weaknesses and work in sync to make sure our customers are getting the best possible advice.

The vibe of our store is very youthful and energetic, it is a place of enthusiasm and vibrancy where we embrace diversity and communicate with complete honesty. Our rosters are flexible because our staff have lives outside of work but we expect punctuality and 100% commitment whilst on the shop floor.

Something that sets us apart from other retail outlets is that we prioritise customer service over the netting of a sale. Our culture is all about supporting our customers through a purchase from start to finish; even it means sending them to a competitor if they have what the customer wants.
Ideal Candidate
Loves Books & Learning
We want people who not only love to read but love to share their passion for reading with those around them. Being able to confidently make purchase recommendations to customers is a must as well as the ability to work at least 4 shifts a week (with availability for 2 shifts between Mon-Thur).

Any sort of tech, or VM experience would be a definite plus, as would a second language. Any candidates must be ready and willing to undergo extensive in-store training and embrace different genres.
Owners
Pam & Jon
Originating from Coffs Harbour, we love to travel and read. We have a passion to travel and explore different cultures in the aim of being able to experience the life of a local. Canada, America and all of Asia have a soft spot in our hearts when it comes to travel; the diversity and history is something that makes it so great and really gives perspective on life.

Pam loves reading fantasy and Jon is a big fan of crime novels. Reading is a great past time and we feel as if now we have one big library to share with others.
