Summer Reading Catalogue 2021

Welcome to Abbey's Bookshop

Abbey's Bookshop at 131 York Street in the heart of Sydney (right next to the Queen Victoria Building) is an iconic Sydney independent bookstore known for its specialisations in history and crime fiction - but of course we cover the full range of categories. Since 1968 we've been curating a distinctive collection sourced from publishers large and small, and academic presses from around the world - where ideas grow.

Our long-standing customers express our place in their lives with comments like this one, received recently, "Yours is the best shop of its kind in the country so please keep going." So hopefully that gives you an idea of what we do and the passion we bring to it. Our customers are life-long learners and knowledge-seekers and if that sounds like you, then please say hello and come on in to our Aladdin's cave for readers.
