Where browsers are always welcome

Located in the leafy Perth suburb of Claremont, The Lane Bookshop is a truly independent seller of books. Since opening in 1980 we have been sharing our love of all things literary with customers young and old.
We carry a wide range of books by local, national and international authors. Whether it’s fiction, non fiction, adult or children’s books, if we don’t have the title you are searching for we will gladly try and order it in.
Our staff all read voraciously and love nothing better than chatting about books with customers. We happily recommend books for schools, libraries,  book clubs or people just chasing a great read for themselves. Many book clubs meet in The Lane Cafe opposite the bookshop and we always enjoy being invited over to present titles worth considering for discussion.
