Q’s Books is a community minded, family run general book trader and book store operating in the Hunter Valley from 115 Beaumont Street, Hamilton in Newcastle.

It was first opened in 1996 by Brian and Aileen Querruel, with the first shop located in the heart of Newcastle.

After a few years it was time to move to Hamilton, and that’s where Q’s books has been for the last 14 years or so. After 16 years, the Querruels thought it was time for a change and decided to sell. They didn’t have to look far for a buyer, their former employee Sandra.

So in July 2012 Sandra and her husband Greg took over as new owners of Newcastle’s iconic secondhand bookshop.

Not Much has changed at Q’s, We currently maintain a collection of between 100,000 to 150,000 books, with new stock arriving regularly during the week.

We stock pre-loved, rare out of print and new books and if we don’t have what you’re looking for, Sandra will try her best to find you a copy of what ever it is you are looking for.

So please drop in for a browse or just to say “Hi”.

See you soon.
