About Us


WELCOME TO OUR SECOND-HAND BOOK STORE

Books Galore sells used, collectable, remainders and new children's books.
We give 1/3 in credit on books bought from us, and 25% in credit of the sticker price of second hand books published in 2018 & 2020 bought from CNA, Exclusive, Estoril and Bargain Books. When it comes to these books we don't take hard cover fiction, Sale books, books on special, remainders, text books, Mills & Boon or historical romance.

At Books Galore our staff are trained to give you an alternative if the book you're looking for isn't in stock. Our second hand books & handpicked remainders as well as new children's books are half to a third cheaper than the Recommend Retail Price.

Books Galore have been in business for 29 years since 1991 and have 6 branches, 4 in Gauteng and 2 in the Cape.

Our stores buy books seven days a week and our remainders & new children's books come directly from local publishers.

All our staff are avid readers and extremely knowledgeable, so they can help you find exactly what you're looking for. If a particular store does not have the book you're looking for they will try to source it from one of our other stores.
