I echo what my fellow reviewers have to say about Unity, such a special place, if only more people knew about it. Unity to me anyway, feels like how an independent bookshop should truly be, a celebration of printed books that keeps alive a special romanticism, so often lost in our current society.
Unity Books is one of the best hidden gems of Auckland. You don't have to be a book lover to appreciate the cosy, unique feel of the shop, with piles of colourful books covering the shelves, tables and floors. They have an extensive range of all types of books, poetry and stationary, all fairly priced. Go in for a look, even if you don't intend to buy something. Nine times of ten, however, you will.
This bookshop is fantastic to stroll around it with high bookshelfs decorated around the walls. There is a wide range of books and they are reasonably priced. Very friendly staff who are willing AND able to help. Very pleasant experience.
