About Us


Book Express, which is conveniently located at 167 Perth Road (corner Lancaster Road), Westdene, Johannesburg (diagonally across from the UJ Kingsway Campus Main Entrance), was established in 2005 following a call from students in the greater Gauteng area for convenient access to affordable textbooks.
From its establishment, Book Express has built a reputation for service, affordability, providing easy access to textbooks and for reliability. As evidence thereof, we were awarded the prestigious Sage One 702 Small Business of the Year Award in 2014. We have over the years established relationships with customers locally, nationally and internationally. We serve a wide range of students, tuition providers, colleges and corporates in  South Africa, the UK, US, Europe, Australia, Middle East and Asia.
We source our books and materials directly from all the major recognised publishers and distributors, thereby allowing us to offer our books and materials at highly competitive prices.
Book Express is an official UNISA, CIMA and ACCA textbook supplier and we also stock selected titles for UJ, NWU, CPUT, Fort Hare, UFS, NMMU, WSU, Monash, Milpark Business School, Academia, Wits and other private colleges. Book Express also caters for the needs of professionals in the Legal and Accounting fraternities.
