How To Buy Nepali Books From Australia?

By Riya Pant

In Nepal, we love to read books and support our authors and literary community as much as possible. But, nepali literature and authors still haven’t got the exposure in the international market that they deserve. 

If you live in Australia you are well aware of the tender situation there. Finding Nepali books there is not an easy job. You scour to find an international book shop for a long time, and when you do find one, the books are either translated to English or there are books that you have already probably read. 

All in all, there are not many options for you to browse through and pick as you would have back home in Nepal. 

However, it is not impossible to buy Nepali books while living abroad, as we have your back. You can buy Nepali books from Australia through Books Mandala.

Books Mandala:

We are one of the largest online book stores in Nepal. We operate from Nepal and have two large stores with amazing catalogs in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

We have an ever-growing collection of over 35,000 books to choose from that we add and restock to everyday.

We offer the most popular and sensational books to rare and lesser-known books that you can’t find abroad at the best price.

We operate from Nepal, but it is just as easy to purchase books from abroad. We take and ship orders and accept payments internationally. You can have books you want shipped straight to your doorstep even halfway across the world.

Placing Order From Australia: 

It is just as easy to place an order from Australia as it would be from Nepal. All you need is to visit our website, add the books you’re looking for to your cart. Then, finish placing the order by filing in some personal and shipping details. 

We offer various payment and shipping options. For international orders, we accept payments through ‘Stripe’.

Add items to cart

Once you find the books you were looking for, add them to the cart. Keep on browsing and shopping to add more books to your cart.

If an item is listed ‘out of stock’, you can opt to get a restock alert for when it gets restocked.

After you’re done shopping, visit your cart and make sure you shopped the right items and you’re not missing anything.

At the right section, there is an option for you to have the order gift wrapped for a small price if you want to buy books for gifting purposes.

Then, click ‘Checkout’ once you’re done.
