Hello, and welcome to Steadfast Books – Christchurch’s destination bookstore for a curated collection of quality second-hand fiction and non-fiction books. We are passionate on stocking non-fiction books, with 80% of our stock being in this category and 20% being classic and modern fiction.

Story telling in the form of movies and graphic novels are also well catered for. As are selected new books direct from overseas publishing houses at very sharp prices.

We’re an old fashioned bookstore that caters for the dreamer, seeker, collector, and the next generation of readers.

Our mission statement ‘Creating Equal Opportunities, One Book At A Time’.

Our business vision: Is to be able to create the ‘Library of Alexandria’ in a 2nd hand bookstore version. Where knowledge can be found, shared and discussed, encompassing a book museum, where out of print tomes can be accessed by scholars and students, a study area, book nooks and local author section. 

You may have seen us in Cityscape, on Seven Sharp, read about us on Metropol or Stuff or heard about us from social media websites.

We’re open weekdays 10am to 4.30pm, and weekends 10am to 5pm.

Details and a map of our address can be found on the Location page.

Hope to see you soon.
