Hard to Find Books doing a roaring trade

From Afternoons, 1:25 pm on 23 February 2024

Hard To Find books is Aotearoa's largest second hand book business.

The shop specialises in rare and unique books and has a collection of nearly a million titles! Some of which cost tens of thousands of dollars.

It was set up in an Auckland garage way back in 1983, and now also encompasses a Dunedin store and thriving online business.

The shop is also the final resting place for many famous book collections including those belonging to Edmund Hillary, Robert Muldoon and David Lange.

Founder and passionate book fan Warwick Jordan speaks to Mark.
