About Simon


Simon McDonald is a Sydney-based bookseller, who has previously worked for the award-winning independent bookshop Pages & Pages Booksellers and online bookstore Boomerang Books, as well as Simon & Schuster Australia, Bookstr and The Quarto Group.

You’ll currently find him at Potts Point Bookshop. Unless it’s his day off, in which case you’ll find him at a coffee shop with a book in front of him. Or his laptop.

When he’s not reading or writing, which is rare, but is known to happen on occasions, Simon dabbles in the world of video games — he’s not very good at them, but he tries — or pounding the pavement as he seeks to add to his collection of half-marathon medallions.
