Booktopia is Ten Years Old

by |February 5, 2014

Ten years ago Tony Nash started Booktopia on a $10 per day budget. It took 3 days to sell the first book. Now we sell one book every 10 seconds and employee 70 people.

Over 900,000 Australians have bought from Booktopia over the years. Each and every customer should be very proud that we have been able to donate over $300K worth of books in the last year as well as be the major sponsor of Writers Festivals, Readers Conferences and Literacy Programs.

We believe it is our duty to give back as much as we can and the only way to do that is to continue to serve the Australian book loving community as best we can.

Congrats to everyone and Happy 10th Birthday Booktopia!

    And, what an excellent service you have. A great website too, more power to you and long may you live and thrive. Many bookshops could learn something from Booktopia.

    Thanks for all the great service and magical books.
