Holiday Trading Hours and Christmas Deliveries

Imprints Booksellers - Tuesday, December 12, 2017
Season's Readings from your local indie bookseller



Dear readers,

This is just a quick note to let you know that as of today, Tuesday 12 December, 2017, we can no longer guarantee Australia Post deliveries prior to the Christmas public holidays. We still offer free in store collection on every online order and will continue to process orders right through until Christmas Eve. If you have any questions about an order you've placed, please call us on (08) 8231 4454 to check the status.

In our final message of the year, we'd like to thank you for the immense support you've given us throughout 2017. From a record-breaking Love Your Bookshop Day, to book signings with some of Australia's leading thinkers and cultural icons, the success of the past year is evidence of what we can achieve with a passionate community behind us.

With every book you purchase, every event you attend, and each new friend you introduce to your favourite local bookshop, you help to strengthen the culture of independent bookselling here in Adelaide. With the recent launch of an online retail giant upon our shores, we expect competition to be fierce in 2018. But we're confident that there remains a place for independent bookshops in Australia’s cultural landscape, because we offer something no online retailer can: air-conditioning.

In all seriousness though, thanks for everything you do to help us grow. We simply would not be here without you, and we look forward to plying you with reading material, impulse purchases, and unsolicited advice for many years to come.

Wishing you a happy and prosperous Christmas and New Year,

Jason, Katherine & Kara

Introducing Imprints Online Bookclub

Imprints Booksellers - Monday, December 29, 2014

We are excited to announce a special new project to be implemented in 2015 – an online Imprints bookclub! Each month, we will publish lists of the books we've been reading on Facebook, Twitter and here on our blog. You'll have a chance to leave your comments and thoughts and you'll also have the opportunity to share some of your favourite books with us.

As a little taste of what's to come, our picks for the holiday season are featured below! Have you read any of them? What strange and wonderful books are on your reading list this festive season?

Katherine’s favourite books for the holiday season are an eclectic blend of the quirky and the classic. She's looking forward to delving into some good historical fiction with Jessie Burton's highly-acclaimed novel, The Miniaturist. Her crime pick for the summer is Slow Horses by Mick Herron  a gritty, realistic and thrilling spy novel which plays host to an array of deeply flawed yet likeable characters. Katherine also plans to tick a modern classic off her reading list with Sylvia Plath's pitch-perfect novel of youth and heartache, The Bell Jar.

What do fabulous chickens, policemen and Neil Young's cars have in common? They're all feature on Jason's summer reading list! Ernest Goh pays homage to the anything-but-humble chicken in his magnificent photographic book, Chickens. In his second autobiographical volume, Special Deluxe, singer-songwriter and cultural icon Neil Young reveals more of his life before fame with a special focus on his enduring love for vintage cars. The Last Policeman by Ben H. Winters is also on Jason's list and promises to be thrilling blend of apocalyptic action and crime noir goodness.


Kara has been engrossed in the lastest volume of The Canary Press the long-awaited genre issue! Her favourite story in it so far is Kij Johnson's 26 Monkeys, Also the Abyss. Kara is also looking forward to reading Alice Pung's young adult debut, Laurinda, a sweet and funny coming-of-age tale set in a snooty private girls' school in Melbourne. Chuck Palahniuk's crazy new adventure in American subculture, Beautiful You is also on her to-be-read pile and, time permitting, she hopes to enjoy a selection of W.H. Auden's Collected Longer Poems as well.
