We finally have a website up and running that isn't just a blog! Welcome, friend.

The Book Catapult is an independent bookstore located in the South Park neighborhood of San Diego. We opened on October 7th, 2017 - taking over the space formerly occupied by the West Grove Collective. We "specialize" in new 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 5000 books living in 1000 square feet, we also have several clothing, jewelry, folk art, and home goods vendors mixed in among the books and in a boutique space.
