The Book Grocer is an Australian, family-owned book business specialising in bargain books, remainders and a handpicked selection of great secondhand books. We also sell retail books always at a discount from the RRP.  We are an online bookstore and also have bookshops in Melbourne, regional Victoria, Canberra, Adelaide, Sydney and Newcastle.

We offer FREE Shipping on all orders over $50. We offer FREE Instore Pickup for orders of any size.  Shipping for smaller orders is with Australia Post or Direct Freight and costs $10.

We have been buying and selling books since 2000, when our first bookshop opened in Kingston, Canberra.

At The Book Grocer, we take our books very seriously. 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.

Important Note about Remainders:   All the books we list are in very good to new condition.  Sometimes a book may be 'remainder marked' (a small texta mark on the base of the book).  Questions? Just get in touch by email.  

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.
