Welcome to The Bookshelf of Oz
This website is owned, maintained and stocked by Judy Mather, a 'retired' RN / Midwife
Quite a few websites boast that they have the 'largest range of books available on the internet'. And then go on to warn that there may be delays of up to 12 weeks between ordering and receiving a book. I run my site differently - I hand pick every book I sell and they are all genuinely in stock unless noted otherwise beside the individual title. If a book is out of stock, it will usually be available again within a few days. There are currently over 2000 titles listed and I'm adding more titles regularly. If you are searching for a particular title, please contact me - I may have it sitting here awaiting listing, or I may be able to locate it for you.
I started off selling a few of my own books online 7 years ago, and what began as an interesting pastime has developed into a more-than-full-time job. At the end of 2006 I quit my night-shift nursing job to concentrate on online retailing, setting up this website in mid-2007. I do still sell occasionally on online auction sites, but now spend most of my time building up my range of books on my own website and maintaining a high level of customer service for all my customers.
October 2010 - My partner Greg and I walked the Camino de Santiago Frances~ The Pilgrim's Path ~ in Spain. If you are interested in following our journey and seeing some amazing photos, please visit our blog Walking the Camino
April 2011 - Greg and I did a road trip across the US, from LA to Florida and back again. If you want to see where we went and who we met, click here
April - June 2012 - We went for another long walk, this time through Portugal and Spain, and you can follow our journey here - Walking the Camino in Portugal
August - September 2012 - We went for a shorter but much tougher walk, doing part of the Larapinta Trail from Ellery Creek to Simpson's Gap in the Northern Territory - click here to see some spectacular photos and to read about our adventure
But that's probably enough from me about me. Here are some comments from a few of my happy customers.
I just want to say a big thank you for the great service you have always offered. I live in Sri Lanka and have been able to get from the Bookshelf of Oz all the books I so desperately needed. The books I ordered have arrived carefully packed and in extremely good condition despite the distance. I appreciate your friendly and prompt service so much. I am simply amazed by way in which you patiently and kindly provide me with answers and solutions to all queries I have regarding the books I order, shipping etc. You have even taken the trouble to find for me whatever books I wanted. Judy, for me you are much more than the owner of Bookshelf of Oz, you are a lovely person with such unique qualities. Thank you so much. Dilki (Sri Lanka)
Thank you so much for fulfilling my order of the three books. They arrived safely in the mail this morning. I must congratulate you on your service and efficiency and will certainly have no hesitation in placing further orders with you nor recommending you to other people. Rhonda (QLD)

If you're still reading, here's another photo of me, hard at work! Yes, that's a pink dressing gown I'm wearing.
And here's a little fellow who visited us recently. He's sitting just outside our office window
