Logical Unsanity 24 Hour Book Shed

The Book Merchant Jenkins also runs the Logical Unsanity 24 Hour Book Shed in Bardon. As of April, 2023, the shed is now closed. The shed was open 24 hours a day and filled with thousands of $1 & $2 books. Prices are marked, but you pay what you want/can in the honesty box on the gate. Book Shed Books are not catalogued online.

In memory of the shed you can read a few lovely articles from the ABC or Book Riot

We still maintain a separate online inventory of cheaper stock that is available in our West End. These books are catalogued in a separate database and not shown here on our main website. Use the search box below to search or browse our full bargain inventory on Biblio. To make cataloguing our bargain inventory viable only stock photos are used and as such the cover may sometimes differ from the stock image shown. Basic grading has been used but is always on the conservative side.

The bargain books are available in the shop and we can combine shipping on items across both inventories. Send us an email for a confirmation and quote. For Australian customers the flat rate of $8 for standard shipping per order applies for orders of items from both inventories.
