Mainly Books was established in 1988. It closed in 2007 and re-opened in 2009 at 209A Bulwer St Perth. For old customers this is just a few doors up from its previous location.

It is a good quality general second hand bookshop covering most areas.

As well as a wide range of hardback and paperback fiction and crime, it carries philosophy, poetry, plays, jazz, film, travel, Australiana, Western Australiana, literature, the classics, art and science fiction.

Older books are carried but there is no pretence to be solely an antiquarian bookshop.

Service is friendly, free book searches are undertaken and prices are reasonable.
