****CHANGED OPENING HOURS FROM 1 JULY 2017 - SEE BELOW****

Welcome to Adelaide Booksellers at 12 Twin Street, Adelaide and a world of secondhand, out-of-print & antiquarian books. Established in 1979, we are professional booksellers with both on-line and bricks & mortar stores. It's easy to browse most of our stock on-line or you can drop in to the shop and enjoy our peaceful surroundings.  We have over 30,000 quality secondhand books [most out-of-print] across a wide range of topics including South Australian history, military history, collectable childrens', art, general fiction, crime fiction and much, much more.  A lot of our stock, but not all, is online - so a telephone call or email is worth a try.   BUT - if we haven't got what you're after then we'll help you find it.  As one of Adelaide's most highly regarded secondhand bookstores we have a reputation for quality books and excellent customer service.  Phone  08 84100216 or email books@adelaidebooksellers.com.au.  

 How to Find Us   Located on the Lower Ground Floor, 12 Twin Street, just around the corner from Rundle Mall and a few yards east of Adelaide Arcade.    Twin Street runs off Rundle Mall [parallel to Adelaide Arcade] almost opposite the Richmond Hotel.  The stairs are wide and gentle or you can take the lift if you choose which makes it easy for disabled access or bringing prams and pushers.  Moving around the store is also easy with wide aisleways.

Change to Opening Hours - from 1 July 2017  Because of the ever increasing cost of electricity we have had to look for ways to reduce our power usage.  We've tried several alternatives such as reducing the number of fluro's etc with little impact.  So the only real alternative is to have the lights on for less time.  So, after a long look as trading patterns etc we have decided to change our Monday to Friday opening hours to 10.00am until 5.00pm [was 9.30-5.30].  Saturday hours remain as 10am-3pm for the moment.  We apologise for this but we can not see any other sensible option.
