The Book Catapult is an independent bookstore located in the South Park neighborhood of San Diego. We opened in October 2017, offering all new books with a focus on new literary fiction, short stories, narrative nonfiction, science and nature writing, and kids picture books. But really we aim to stock those books that you didn't know you needed until you held them in your hands, thumbed their pages, and had a good conversation about them with an expert bookseller. That's really what we're all about. (Find out more about who we are and the history of The Book Catapult in the "About" section up above. And if you're looking for the old school Catapult, it's right here.)

In addition to 6000 books living in 1000 square feet, we also have two fantastic clothing & jewelry vendors mixed in among the books and in a dedicated boutique space.
