Bookgrove is still open, but with a difference. 

I am instore and open to 2 customers at a time from Monday to Saturday between 10.30 am - 3.30 pm.


We have a sanitizing station and ask that you avoid handling items unnecessarily and maintain your distance of 2 metres from staff and customers.

Browse here on the website , start with the new releases tab, and our gorgeous new catalogue, entitled "Brilliant Beautiful Books" and telephone bookgrove between 11 - 3, if you see something that tickles your fancy.

I am happy to take your phone calls on 52555973, your emails to, your facebook and instagram direct messages, and to make recommendations, talk about books and take orders and payment over the phone AND for you to collect or for us to deliver books to your front door for FREE all over the Bellarine.
