Gone West Slightly Used Books is a tiny shop in the heart of Titirangi Village, gateway to the famed Waitakere Ranges, sheltering Auckland City from the north west weather.

The shop offers a wide range of used books and also stocks some new titles, especially those relating to the local landscape and community.
There is a small collection of signed first editions, including titles by Maurice Gee, whose novel Gone West inspired the name of the shop.
My main business is the locating and sourcing titles as specific orders for customers and so I do a lot of trading on the Internet - especially Abebooks . I offer estimates of value on specific titles and can also give an idea of worth of collections and estates libraries.
Suggestions on restoration can be given and binding arranged.
The shop is open from Tuesday to Sunday from noon to five pm, although over the Summer hours may be extended. I am also the programme director of the Going West Books and Writers Festival which has been running for 16 years in Titirangi. There is a link to the website for this event on this page as well as to some of my stock on Abebooks.
