Get ready for Christmas with Readings

November has arrived and the countdown to Christmas cheer is starting… Let us help make shopping during this year’s festive season as painless as possible.

Over the next few weeks we’ll be publishing our curated gift guides, sharing our top 10 best books, CDs and DVDs of the year, and releasing our annual Summer Reading Guide, which is always jam-packed with great recommendations.

We’ll also be featuring a host of year-end special offers. Make sure you sign up to our enews to receive an invitation to our annual in-store Christmas shopping day, exclusive for our subscribers. On this day we offer all Readings Monthly and Readings enews subscribers 20% off full-priced books, CDs, vinyl, stationery and calendars, as well as 10% off full-priced DVDs. This subscriber discount will apply to in-store purchases only.

Enews subscribers will also be the first to receive our 12 Days of Christmas offers, direct to your inbox. Each offer will be made available in our seven shops as well as online, though there is often limited stock available – so you’ll need to get in quick.

To sign up to our enews, you simply need to click here, pop in your email address and hit the ‘Sign up now’ button. If you’d also like to receive Readings Monthly (our free monthly print newsletter), then please include your name and postal address.

If you’re looking for a one-on-one customer service experience, our knowledgeable staff are always on hand at our shops to help you choose the perfect gift. If you can’t make it into a shop, you can send still us an email at and we’ll respond with a personalised recommendation.

And if you’re still stumped for what to get your friend / family member / coworker / neighbour / and more, don’t forget that we offer gift vouchers which can be used in-store and online.

We also offer free gift wrapping for all online purchases (we can even include a handwritten note if you like), and we have express and international shipping options available for online purchases.

We do offer gift wrapping in-store for a small donation. These donations go directly to the Readings Foundation, which supports the development of literacy, community integration, and the arts. 10% of Readings profits go to the Foundation each year which means that when when you shop at Readings you’re not only supporting your local, independent bookshop, you’re also supporting the development of literacy, community integration, and the arts.

Our Christmas shipping deadline for in-stock items being shipped in Australia is 11.59pm Wednesday 11 December. Please make sure you place your order before then to guarantee delivery in time for Christmas.

Last Christmas
