In an area famed for food, THE WOMEN'S BOOKSHOP is the local purveyor of fine words in Ponsonby Road, a vibrant area with a thriving bar and cafe scene as well as many specialty shops.

Our purpose has always been to promote women's writing and to provide books reflecting women's diverse lives and interests. We also have lots of men customers and we welcome them. In recent years we have become one of New Zealand’s leading specialists in therapy and counselling books.

As a quality, independent New Zealand bookstore, we are renowned for our passion for books and for our personal service. This includes fast, efficient MAIL-ORDER all over the country, and a commitment to sourcing SPECIAL ORDERS - if it's available we'll get it for you.

We have won many awards, most recently the Booksellers Award for best marketing campaign 2016

We host frequent author events - check out our News and Events page.

We send out an OCCASIONAL E-NEWS when we have events and important news for people. Make sure you don't miss out - email us to be on the list.

We are also much more than a bookshop. We are a community resource providing such services as a noticeboard; information about events, courses and community happenings; selling tickets and providing a friendly inviting space where women can meet.
