Two Years in a World of Books

Two Years in a World of Books

April 1st is a day we're celebrating - it's been two years of life in Book Haven. Two years of owning and running a second-hand bookshop, which means two years of being surrounded by and immersed in the world of books and that is a real privilege.

It’s been a busy start to the year for us as we’ve been preparing to bring our books to the Wellington waterfront.


For the next 5 days we will be at the Performance Arcade 2024 in the Pop-Up Books container (the shop will still be open as usual).

Childhood books: Amelia Bedelia, Ramona the Pest, The Wombles, Mrs Pepperpot, 'Spy Stories for Boys', & 'A Fish Out of Water.'

Books Coming & Going

The books on the shelves keep changing, matching the ebb and flow of the so many readers and book lovers who wander through the shop or buy online. … Sometimes it's like greeting old friends when new books arrive...Other times it's hard to say goodbye to a book. But then there is the delight in seeing them going off to new homes to be read and cherished and the knowledge that there will always be more coming.
