What is the future for Writer’s Plot Readers Read Bookshop?

As an incorporated society we have applied for funding but we are at a stage where we need to have a discussion on the future of the the shop. If you want the shop to continue, want to support kiwi authors then have your say as a member of the Inc Soc.

An Application form can be downloaded and completed, then either scanned and emailed to us or posted. We are getting ready to hold a meeting to discuss the future… and you can be part of that. Please contact us at if you have any questions.

AGM will be held at the shop Saturday 15th July 2017 at 2pm – for those that are unable to get to the shop there will be a link sent out to those who request it (email us) for video conferencing.

Unable to commit to being a member? Then purchasing a book from us helps keep us going. We sell new books and we will order in books if you can’t find them. Prefer to use an e-reader/kindle – then search through the selection on our A Store.

Not a reader or have too many books already? Then how about a donation to help us keep going through Givealitte. Anyone at anytime can donate – any amount is appreciated.

 Blind date with a book – details on our Competitions and Promotions page.

 Important Note: UHCC road works – this is occurring right outside of the shop and in the lane behind from 10 July for 4 (or more) weeks and may cause the shop to be closed due to noise and amenities being unavailable . Check for facebook updates.
