The Devonport Bookshop is an independent bookshop that has provided a haven for readers in the Devonport region of North West Tasmania, since 1995.  Co-owner Tim Gott grew up in the family newsagency in Devonport and, after stints in Abbeys Bookshop and the Henry Lawson Bookshop in Sydney and then time working in the book department in Harrods, London, he and Anne returned to Tasmania and purchased the bookshop in 1995.  Tim and Anne have recently celebrated 25 years ownership of the bookshop and are still passionate about the role books play in our everyday lives.
