Frequently Asked Questions

Who are you?

We're a team of passionate readers, reviewers, and sellers of books. 

We're all about getting the right books into the right hands and encouraging the reading culture within Australia.

Where can I find you?

We're mostly an online store, though we do run a book stall at some local events, such as the Continuum Convention that takes place in Melbourne every June.

Are you available for other events?

We sure are!

If you're hosting a local event and would like some booksellers on site to ensure the attendees can get their hands on a copy of the relevant book, we'd love to hear from you. Send us an email!

How do I place my order?

The easiest way to place an order is to send us an email at info@bookishuniverse.com.au, and we'll respond with an invoice which can be processed securely through Square.

At this stage, we can also give you an up to date estimate on delivery times, based on whether all titles are in stock (with us, or at the publisher), and when we would expect to send them your way.

How long will my order take to arrive?

At this stage, orders are placed on or around the 15th of each month. 

The publishers advise a window of 7-10 business days for shipping (though it is often much faster than this) and we endeavour to turn orders around within 48 hours. 

Based on delivery times to your address, you should be seeing your new items around the end of the month, providing your orders are in before the cut-off.
