"A house without books is like a body without a soul"

- Cicero

Welcome to Minton Booklovers

We are based in central Napier and are locally owned and operated secondhand book store.  We aim to provide a clean and comfortable shop where customers can come and spend as long as they wish perusing the books in a welcoming atmosphere (make use of the cozy armchairs). 

We stock preloved books that booklovers across multiple genres can enjoy. We maintain an emphasis on recycling books to ensure that each book has a treasured, appreciated, and continuing life. 

We believe each book not only has a story on the pages but also has a story of its own - with a life of experiences in its own right!
