Moruya Books

Moruya’s independently owned and run bookshop. Situated in the heart of Moruya, Moruya Books was established on July 5th, 2004.

Since then the shop has doubled in size, opened and closed an ice-creamery, survived floods and the fires all due to popular demand and the support of a loyal customer base. Pop in and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, pick up a book, steal a comfy chair and take in the art of our Book Nook Gallery.

We offer a diverse range of books from Science Fiction to Poetry, Romance to Picture Books and Gardening to Politics.

Upcoming event!

Join us at Mogendoura Farm on the 27th of February at 10am to 12pm for a literary morning tea with authors Karen Viggers and Inga Simpson.

Highlighting Karen's latest book Sidelines. 

A teenage sports game descends into a brawl after a controversial line call in a fast-paced contemporary novel from the bestselling author of The Orchardist's Daughter.

'Sidelines is a riveting novel. It takes our jittery, intensely competitive era and unpicks our self-deceptions until they bleed.' - Jane Caro, bestselling author of The Mother

When a violent brawl erupts at a suburban junior soccer game, some onlookers are shocked. But others saw it coming. Rivalry, parental pressure, coaching bias, inequity, and many other factors have played a part in turning Saturday mornings into a pressure cooker.

Thirteen-year-old Audrey is a talented young football player. But does she want to play for Australia or does she just want to please her father, Ben, whose own thwarted sporting career looms large in his ambitions for his daughter? Audrey's mother, Jonica, doesn't know whether to be more concerned about her anxious daughter, her overbearing husband, or the only other girl on the team, Katerina, who is causing trouble on and off the field. And Katerina's mother, Carmen, is s
o busy looking for opportunities to give Katerina more game time that she fails to notice what is really capturing her daughter's attention. When Griffin, a naturally gifted player with spectacular skills, arrives, the tension within the team reaches boiling point. But who is going to crack first - the parents or the players?
