Free Shipping & Free Gift Wrapping When You Shop Online

Christmas will be here before you know it! It’s time to get all your gifts organised.

The Readings website makes it easy to shop online (or to check stock availability before heading into one of our six shops around Melbourne in Carlton, Hawthorn, St Kilda, Malvern, State Library of Victoria or the Melbourne Brain Centre.)


Here are five great reasons to shop with us this Christmas:

1. Free shipping anywhere in Australia when you order online!

2. Free gift wrapping! Just tick the gift wrapping box in checkout when ordering online or request gift-wrapping at the counter in-store (we do ask for a gold coin donation to the Readings Foundation when gift wrapping in-store.)

3. Gift vouchers! Not sure what to get your friends and family, but know they love Readings? Our gift vouchers make it easy. When purchasing online, the gift voucher will be emailed to you straight away and you can print it out or forward it on to the gift recipient.

4. 10% of all our profits go to the Readings Foundation!

5. You’ll be shopping at a local, independent, Australian-owned bookshop!

If you’re looking for gift ideas, our Summer Reading Guide is a handy resource to great books, CDs, DVDs and more. We also have compiled our choices for this year’s best books, music and film. And we’ve got a handy gift guide for buying for your parents right here. (Look out for more gift guides on our blog this week!)

Here are our Christmas shipping deadlines for ordering online:

Please make sure to place your order of in-stock items by 10am on Friday 13 December 2013 to ensure delivery before Christmas.

Orders being shipped to rural or remote areas of Australia should be placed by 10am on Wednesday 11 December or earlier.

Please note, our shipping deadlines are recommendations and we can’t guarantee delivery dates. Items currently not in stock won’t be received by Christmas.

Happy shopping!
