Books at the Book Grocer

The Book GrocerThe Book Grocer Online offers a broad and ever increasing range of discounted remainder and secondhand books.  

Please note that all the books we list are in very good to new condition.  However the condition of individual books and whether they are remainders or secondhand is not marked on the website.  This can mean the book is remainder marked (a small texta mark on the base of the book).  So, the book you wish to purchase may not be suitable as a gift. Please drop us a line if you want to clarify this.   

Our specialty is sourcing discounted books of amazing quality and passing on to our customers the best possible price. We take our book buying very seriously indeed. We scour the globe and the best publishers and suppliers for the best bargains, but no book arrives in our warehouse simply because it's cheap. It has to be something we want to read ourselves and would recommend to others.  We like to be known as the business which sells discounted books yet looks and feels like a retail bookstore. 

Our prices range from $3 for our discount stock up to $12 or $15 for a good hardback, with occasional special books a little higher. Our books are all price stickered so it's easy to see what the price is.  

We are an Australian, family-owned business.  We have been buying and selling books since 2000, when the first Castlebooks store opened in Kingston, ACT. In 2007 we opened the first Book Grocer in Brunswick, Victoria. Book Grocers can now be found in a range of locations across Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and of course, Canberra. 

Our staff also love reading and recommending books to others and we are proud of the role they play in demonstrating to our customers how good discount books can be.  

We hope to see you in your closest Book Grocer store soon.
