About Us

Book Passion is a privately-owned independent bookshop in Canberra, owned and operated by local residents Leisha and Matt Sutton. Our Bookshop is located at the Belconnen Fresh Food Markets just down from the Belconnen Town Centre.  Book Passion was originally established in the current position over 16 years ago and has continued to serve a Canberra community of book lovers ever since. Once only selling remaindered books, Book Passion now stocks new releases as well as a fantastic backlist of fiction and non-fiction for all ages.

As an Early Childhood Teacher, Leisha specialises in children’s books, our strength has always been in providing excellent advice and recommendations for young readers. We believe that connecting the right story with the right reader is of the uppermost importance in nurturing a love of reading in our young people.  We stock a wide range of children’s fiction and non-fiction titles, including specially books created and written as Dyslexia friendly/reluctant readers.

At Book Passion and pride ourselves on stocking an eclectic mix of unique books as well as popular books and books relevant to the specific interest to our local Canberra community.
