Established 32 years ago, this independent bookshop is a Christchurch institution. It is the place to go to browse and buy books. With old-fashioned leather library chairs strategically placed around the shop, it is easy to spend hours here. Scorpio Books' collection ranges from the latest best sellers to such obscure and diverse topics as the occult and tarot. They also have the largest selection of fantasy and science fiction in New Zealand. With a computer database containing over a million titles, what they do not have they can get for you--provided its still in print.
Currently located at 113 Riccarton Road due to the earthquake in February, with our city center shop in the cordon, and no clear sign of when a possible return would be, we are enjoying the new atmosphere out here beside Westfield Riccarton Mall.
