Arcturus Books. More than a bookshop

Where do you go when you want to learn something new? Or perhaps when you need someone to help you to find your next challenge? Perhaps you are faced with overwhelm when you browse the 1000's of book titles available online today - which books are the best ones to buy and read? Who can you trust to guide you? Arcturus Books is your source of inspiration.

The internet is a great place to discover new things and researching your next book purchase is a breeze... or is it?

It is our experience that looking online for a new book to buy is actually pretty difficult: every book seller lists as many books as they can so they are rarely curated; the categories are often of little use as they tend to be very generic and therefore don't give you guideposts on your journey of discovery; the book descriptions are not overly helpful in deciding whether to actually buy the book and there is no-one to call and ask about whether the book may be suitable.

At Arcturus Books we take a different view. We stock 100's of books in our high street shop but we have opted to show you just over 100 titles on this website spread across our carefully titled categories. We want to help you find the right book for you and so in this case, less is more. Once you have read this curated collection, let us know and we'll recommend another 100 to read! Enjoy your browsing today and we hope to see you in-store soon.

What We Believe In
Books are a gift that keep on giving, every time you pick them up and for the rest of your life. We want to help you find and enjoy the best books for your tastes.
