Abacus is the only specialist educational bookseller in New Zealand - our showroom stocks a full range of current educational book titles, which enables us to fulfill most online orders quickly and efficiently.

As well as textbooks, work books, and study guides, we also stock the most recently published adult fiction, teenage fiction and non-fiction titles.

Not sure? Book recommendations are available from our knowledgeable staff, so email us or call if you have a book requirement you would like advice on. Schools - we offer class book sets at competitive prices - and as an independent book supplier, we offer impartial advice. 

Currently, our website is set not to show the quantities we have available - please feel comfortable about completing an order for titles you are interested in. Soon after we receive an order, we will contact you regarding the availability of the titles ordered and inform you of payment options. At that stage there will be a chance to amend an order, for any reason.

Not all titles are listed on the website, so email us or call if you have a book request, we will provide a no obligation Price and Availability report, and can supply any in-print book, from any Publisher in the world, at no extra charge for that service. Order online, email or phone us, or visit our Albany showroom.
