About Us

Located in the heart of Jackson Street, the shelves of Schrödinger’s Books are full of titles which will enlighten, delight and inform readers of all ages. There is something for everyone, with a good selection of books both fiction and non-fiction, including science, history, music, cookery, politics, crime, manga, sci-fi and children’s books. You will also find a decent selection of books about Aotearoa, with many in te reo Māori.

Come in and browse the beautiful books, smell the winning aroma of new books and the old wood that makes up the beautifully hand-crafted shelves. Mary, Will, Beki and Claudia are always happy to chat about books and recommend the perfect gift. 

We offer an education discount for books bought on account by schools, so if you are a librarian or teacher, ask us about setting up an account with us.

If the book you want isn’t in stock, it can be ordered in especially for you.

We also host book groups, author signings and many other things. Find out more on our Events page.
