Little Gnome is the BIGGEST LITTLE BOOKSHOP in Brisbane. 
We sell new books, with a strong emphasis on self published Australian Authors. In fact, we stock almost 150 titles, from over 80 authors! We also stock mainstream publications, but we do take pride in showcasing some of Australia's newest writers!

But we don't just stock books! Read on...

We serve Montville Coffee, Tielka Teas, milkshakes, chai tea, chai lattes, hot chocolates & a selection of yummy treats such as raisin toast, Choc or Nutella fudge brownies, banana breads, cookies & more.

Little Gnome runs a monthly bookclub, with all the books selected coming from our local authors. Find new stories to follow, worlds to delve into and characters to love. Take a chance on a new author - who knows, they may just be the next big thing in the literary world, or perhaps just the next big thing in your book world. Either way, it's perfect.

We run a regular games night, where you can BYO board and card games, or join in the fun with the great range we keep on the big table. This has been postponed due to Human Bel's illness. #beatingcancer!

Little Gnome holds regular writing and community workshops, events & author signings - join our mailing list!

Book the big table for your next meeting, or group gathering. Drop by with friends, or come along by your self and meet new ones. Little Gnome's Humans, Bel & Jack, are always eager to chat, discuss the world, the books, the authors, or just have a laugh. On the big table you will find scrabble, chess, Connect Four, Uno, The Art Of Conversation Cards and plenty of colouring books to colour in (not just for kids to enjoy, but for all Humans to enjoy)

See you Humans at Little Gnome sometime soon.

PLEASE NOTE: For the rest of 2019, we are not taking new submissions from authors outside of the local area.

This is just until we get back on track after a challenging 2018.

Meet Little Gnome & His Humans... and all of our delightfully amazing Little Gnome family...

Who is Little Gnome & His Humans?

Little Gnome is Wynnum's biggest attraction!


Little Gnome is run by Mum & Son Duo, Human Bel & Human Jack, with a little help from their fearless leader, Little Gnome.

We also have the very tall and dapper young lad, Human Kris, who works with us on Saturday mornings and whenever we need to reach things ridiculously high up!

We sell new books, coffees, teas, fancy pants milkshakes, choc fudge brownies, banana breads & other awesome treats!
