THE Advent Calendar for book lovers!

This is our Advent Fiction Book Box. It will contain fiction books from a range of genres, from literature to romance, crime, thriller, classics and science fiction. Not all genres will necessarily be included but it will be a good range of reading for summer! (The books are not Christmas-related.)

There will not be any duplicates between this year and last year's Advent Fiction Book Box.

This is a Mystery Book Box with a special touch- 24 books individually wrapped for the recipient and numbered, designed to be opened each day from 1 December to Christmas Eve.

This box is available now in strictly limited numbers. It will be shipped sometime between now and mid-November. It will be labeled "Do not open before December 1st".

    Currently we do not ship outside Australia. We have a separate website for New Zealand customers which can be found here.

    If you would like to ship items to more than one address, please place separate orders for these items. 

    Shipping Time

    We endeavour to process your item(s) within 24/48 business hours. We use a combination of Australia Post (for smaller orders) and a shipping company to deliver your order.  You can expect your items within 4-5 days outside peak (Christmas) season. 

    For in-store pickup: Our warehouse is Melbourne-based. We deliver customer orders to our stores on a regular but somewhat unpredictable schedule. If you are based in Melbourne your order is likely to arrive at your selected store earlier than if you select an interstate in-store pickup option.

    Pickup from our Bourke, Spencer and Northcote stores could take up to 1 week to receive your order. 

    Pickup from our Newcastle and Majura stores could take up to 2 weeks to receive your order.

    Pickup from our Tullamarine Warehouse your order will be ready the next business day.

    Your chosen store will get in touch with you by email to let you know your book has arrived. 

    Wondering about what happened to our previous Free Shipping policy? Our reasons for making this change can be found here

    Change of Mind - Remainder Marks

    Generally we do not accept returns due to a change of mind. 

    Our books are remainders which means that they occasionally have a texta mark at the base of the book.  This is one reason our prices are so low.  Unfortunately we cannot accept returns for books that are marked in this way. 

    Change of Mind - Mystery Boxes

    We do not generally provide a change-of-mind refund simply because a Mystery Box contains books you are not interested in.  Any refunds we may give will be on a discretionary basis and will depend on the box being shipped back to us. You would be required to pay return shipping for your box.

    Mystery Box - Important to Read:  We do our best to ensure that our Mystery Boxes contain books selected from a wide range of categories.  (Aside from specific Mystery Boxes such as YA Mystery, of course).  As such, you're almost certainly not going to love all the books.  However, they are about $3 each, so can be re-gifted, used for craft, used to bulk out your collection, saved for a hobby you don't yet have... it's up to you!

    We will, however, provide you with a refund for any duplicates of the same title in a Mystery (or any) Box.  Please send a photograph with your email.  The refund is calculated as a proportion of the number of books in the box. 

    If you are concerned you might not like the books in a Mystery Box, we strongly encourage you to try one of our category boxes instead - which have the full book list published in the description.  

    Damaged or incorrect orders 

    If you have received items that are damaged or incorrect please contact us at help@bookgrocer.com.

    Please note that we will assess damages and any returns/refunds are at our discretion.  Full information about damage criteria can be found here.

    If your return is accepted, we’ll send you a return shipping label, as well as instructions on how and where to send your package. Items sent back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted. 

    Please inspect your order upon reception and contact us immediately if the item is defective, damaged or if you receive the wrong item, so that we can evaluate the issue and make it right.

    Exceptions / non-returnable items

    Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns on sale items or gift cards. 

    Refunds

    We will notify you once we’ve received and inspected your return, and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be automatically refunded on your original payment method. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.

    Loved It!!!

    I absolutely loved the Advent Calendar box and I hope to make this a yearly tradition. They were all wrapped beautifully and although some weren’t books I would usually buy which was obviously expected… I read them anyway and the saying to never judge a book by its cover rings true. I was also pleasantly surprised with the super fast delivery. This company is amazing and I will definitely buy again. Thank you!!!

    Advent Christmas Box

    My daughter gave me this as a surprise because I love to read. The excitement each day opening the individually wrapped book is so much fun. Every book so far has been so good and I look forward to reading them all. It has introduced me to some new authors and the selections have been so great. Would definitely recommend this as a fun thing to get or give as a gift to someone special who loves to read. Great value

    I actually haven’t had a book box myself but have given 3 away as gifts and everyone has loved them. The one got got for my Mum was the Christmas box it got lost and they made her up a new one all wrapped within 3 days of me letting them know. Their customer service was amazing

    Best present ever! :)

    My Advent Calendar arrived well before I was allowed to open it (there's a sticker telling me not to on the front. I'm apparently neurotically compliant.). Just between us, I will confess that I did cave and open it a couple of days early and lined the prettily wrapped books up on the bookshelf in my bedhead. On December 1 I woke up, stretched and yawned and then plucked Day 1 from the bookshelf and opened it before I even got up. I had never heard of the author, which is excellent, trying new authors is why I buy the boxes. I am reading them as I go along and I don't open the next one until I've finished the one I'm on. I have discussed with my workplace whether I can take the month of December off so that I can read a book a day but they won't play. Clearly not readers! :( So, it's December 8 and I've just started the Day 3 book but I loved the first two and about 20 pages in am already enjoying the third. (Work don't only make me go to work 5 DAYS A WEEK!!! they also make me too tired to read until midnight. There must be a law against that. Anyone know a good lawyer?) So far this has been an very well curated selection for my tastes, as was the mystery and thrillers box I bought earlier in the year. This really feels like the best Xmas present I have ever received.
