If you are an author with a published book that you are interested in having us carry in store, please email us at events@russellbooks.com. Include the following information about your books:

  • Title
  • Subject matter
  • Publication date
  • Marketing plan
  • Events you have been a part of
  • Critical reviews
  • Any other pertinent information 

Please keep in mind that we are a predominantly second hand bookstore, and any new books we sell are at a discounted price. Although we love and support our local authors and the literary community in Victoria, we are not always able to stock new titles due to the nature of our store and inventory. 

Books we consider are often within the genre of best selling and popular new releases, and books of local interest. 

We thank you for your interest!

We're Moving!

We are thrilled to officially announce that we are moving to a BIGGER and BETTER space! Our new home will be directly across the street at 747 Fort Street (the old Staples building). Opening in Fall 2019 it will offer more space, a simplified layout and will be much more accessible, with an elevator and escalator to the lower floor, while still offering the same Russell Books feel and lots and lots of books!

Community Support

For over 28 years, Russell Books has proudly encouraged reading enthusiasts throughout the Greater Victoria community. We inspire a passion for reading and literacy through participation in community events, and provide ongoing support and partnership with groups and organizations in the book world and beyond.
