Prior to opening Rainy Day Books I sold from home for about fifteen years through a mail order catalogue.  I specialise in "wants" lists, author bibliographies and any other author related information I can help you with.   All email requests for a scan of book will be promptly attended to.

The shop has 15,000 books and the website as an additional 6000 titles.  Listed books are not always held at the shop premises, but are all in my possession at the time of listing and are held in safe and secure storage. Please phone ahead on 03 9762 0862 to arrange inspection.

The Rainy Day Book-shop is located at 1301 Mountain Highway, (corner of Mountain Highway and Forest Road, right at the roundabout) at The Basin,  3154,  Victoria, Australia.   Opening times are 10-5 Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, 10-4 Saturday and 12-4 Sunday.  (Closed Tuedays). 

Shipping charged at cost price. Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 lb, or 1 kg. If your book order is heavy or oversized, we will contact you before processing your order to let you know extra shipping is required.  If your order is for a small item that can be posted cheaper than quoted, then I will adjust the price of your order accordingly.  

All books packed securely and shipped within 24 hours of receipt of payment (except Saturdays).  Postage is extra. No charge for handling or packing.

INSURANCE and/or REGISTERED MAIL may be arranged for an extra charge.

COMBINED TITLES are usually cheaper to ship than several singles; why not look for something else in my listings? Books are carefully packed with protection if needed.

Paypal ; I also accept cheques or money orders from Australia, credit cards accepted.  Cheques and money orders must be honoured and deposited before shipment.

Books are returnable if not as I have described them.  Return postage will be paid by the customer.  

All books supplied as described, but please remember the older books are "used" books, mostly over 50 years old and are not pristine.
