Like many small businesses in recent years, book-selling has traveled down a financial rocky road, but always, we believed many readers retain a desire to discover the pleasure in reading real books. Other forms have found their niche, but they are not what we stock or offer to our clientele. Please browse our lists of Australian and world titles (click on ‘shop’ to see our special Australiana Collection of books & other items for sale). Also included may be masterpieces of Nineteenth Century book-binding, and ephemeral, original & rare ‘one-off’ documents. We also list a selection of Australia & World titles on Biblio.com – search: B.W.Peade bookseller, also Ebay.com.au (user name – Tastiger1) Payment options include Paypal, Direct Debit.

Regards, Sue Waters & Barry Peade, booksellers.

       The site is now operational and we are sorting books to include, they will not necessarily be overwhelmingly Tasmanian subjects but will include a variety of Australian titles, and non-Australian titles. We are also editing the current listings to omit items obviously of little interest. Also, we are on-line with our listings on the Biblio/ Bookfinder/ eBay sites.Thanks for your patience during our return to Tassie. Keep safe.  Sue & Barry


 LISTS…?   We have in stock probably about 5 thousand books – covering a wide swathe of subjects. We are interested in your thoughts on whether you would find it useful to receive an on-line price list of books of particular interest sent to your email address. For example, we could prepare lists on the following non-fiction subjects. We would prefer a specific request for the availability of Fiction titles, authors (1sts etc.)
