Industry Recognition

In 2004 Mary Ryan's was voted Queensland and Australian Book Shop of the Year by the Australian Publishers Association (APA), which consists of industry groups and publishing houses. The APA Industry Awards acknowledge and celebrate achievement within the book industry. It was the second time Mary's has been honoured with these two awards; in 1996 we were awarded under the previous owners, the Ryan family. Our combination of excellent store locations, extensive product selection, successful author events, and, most importantly, dedicated staff, earned Mary's this prestigious industry award once again.

As competition within our industry increases, being a member of one of the most progressive bookstore chains offers you the potential to set your business apart from the competition and extend the Mary Ryan's family into your business. You too will be a part of this successful team with the perfect ingredients to help make your Mary Ryan's bookshop a popular and profitable business.
