ABOUT BIN CHICKEN BOOKS

Welcome to Brisbane based virtual second-hand bookshop 

Bin Chicken Books

 

Inspired by the mighty Ibis; revered by the Ancient Egyptians as the patron of writing and iconised as the urban symbol of Australia, Bin Chicken Books is an environmentally conscious, curated, virtual second-hand bookshop with a focus on intersectional Own Voices, children and adult literature from Australia and across the globe.

At Bin Chicken Books you can find quality reads that you may not find at your local op shop; award winning treasures, translated, queer and intersectional global literature, as well as diverse baby board books, picture books, middle grade chapter books and YA.

We believe that One Chook’s Trash is Another Chook’s Treasure. We want to save as many books as we can from landfill and make reading excellent literature accessible for everyone.

 

So, if you’ve got the environment at heart and a desire to diversify your reading habits, stick your beak in the BCB book bin and start building on your sustainable, Own Voices, intersectional collection!
