About us

You never know what you might find if you live richly!

Variety Bookroom opened for the first time in June 2014. In August the same year, we became Moe’s first ever ABC Centre, this lasted until early 2018 when ABC ceased their licence agreements. We still however keep in stock a range of CD’s, DVD’s and Audio Books.

We sell both used and new books, often in the same section of the shop. For instance, our Life Story section contains both new and used books. Likewise for our cooking section, children’s section, non-fiction sections, and so forth.

Sometimes, people ask if we would be interested in buying books that they don’t want anymore. If the books are suitable, and in good condition, we may be able to negotiate a suitable price.

Before moving to Moe in 2013, I was a pastor with CRC Churches International, serving in Essendon, Broadmeadows, Churchill and, most recently, Warrnambool. With this background, it’s not surprising that Variety Bookroom has a better range of Bibles and Christian books than you would find in most bookshops of similar size.

Lisa, Lisa, Sandie and I look forward to helping YOU find that ideal gift or that next good read for yourself. If we don’t have what you are looking for, we will make every endeavour to order it in for you.

  • I love the selection of children's books. It is easy to find the book I am looking for. Or the five I am not looking for but buy anyway.

  • I couldn't find the book I was looking for anywhere even in this store but within a week he had it ordered and in my hand. So happy to find a store that can get in the books I love.
