About Us

My Bookshop by Corrie Perkin opened its Hawksburn shop in October, 2009. Conceived by journalist Corrie Perkin, the shop quickly became a destination for writers, publishers and bookworms, and is an important part of Melbourne's UNESCO City of Literature culture.

In May 2015 we opened our second store. At 430 Toorak Road, Toorak, we have created what we believe the 21st Century bookshop should be: a place where people can browse beautiful books in peace, where they can be part of interesting book discussions and events, where they are inspired by a carefully-curated selection of homewares and reader-friendly gifts, and where they can enjoy the companionship of like-minded bookworms. My Bookshop Toorak also has a café and a gallery space that features the work of local artists and creatives.
