About Prismatic Pages

Prismatic Pages aims to bring a carefully curated selection of eclectic books to the English-reading community in Oslo. This rotating collection of used and new books spans various genres and interests, ensuring there's something for everyone.

And who's behind it all? It's me, Indigo!

I moved to Oslo first in 2014 from the U.S., and have made this city my home. But the one thing that's missing is a good, English-language bookstore, where you can find something new or used, recommended with confidence.

So, I decided to create what I envisioned.

At my cozy store in Rathkes gate 7b you’ll find books that I can either personally recommend or have it on good authority are worth checking out.

I know together we’re going to find so many new favorite reads.

Books for credit program - currently on hiatus!

Many people ask us where we get our used books, and the answer is mostly from our wonderful customers! We have a donation for credit program where you can bring books to the store, we evaluate them, and if they are ones we can sell then you get 25% in store credit of what we hope to sell them for.

However, the program was so wildly popular that we now have a backlog of several thousand books! We are currently working through those stacks as fast as we can, but that means donations are on pause until further notice.

Prismatic principles

We carefully curate our collection of English-language books to offer a unique and interesting selection for readers of all ages.

Community Engagement

We believe in fostering a community of book lovers by organizing events like book swaps, book clubs, and more.


The books you find at Prismatic Pages should show you a different perspective than the usual bestsellers (though there are a few of those mixed in as well).
