The Book Grocer – Canberra

Shopping and Markets

The Book Grocer is a family-owned book business established in Kingston, Canberra in 2000 (we were known then as Castlebooks). We take pride in sourcing and selling a huge range of books, all discounted.

Our current Canberra store is located at Majura Park Shopping Centre and we also have a thriving online business – we offer thousands of books online and we offer free shipping Australia-wide for orders $50 and above. Members receive a 5% reward on all purchases, both instore and online.

The Book Grocer has several Melbourne stores which are currently closed to the public due to the Stage 4 restrictions. Our other stores are in Sydney, Newcastle, Adelaide, Bendigo and Ballarat.

Our specialty during COVID-19 has been our Book Boxes – a fabulous range of between 20-40 books for just $100. Build your home library for a fraction of the cost with the Book Grocer.
