Books

Located on Budaiya Highway, close to the Saar roundabout, The Bookcase has, over the years, established itself as an essential part of community life in Bahrain. Opened by an avid book loving mother with two small children, it’s a place for parents to bring their children and browse in peace, meet our resident African grey parrot Roger ,and spend quality time together as a family.

As an independent bookshop with a collection of more than 8,000 titles, our stock covers a wide range of interests from the classics of world literature to the cutting edge of contemporary fiction, not forgetting a copious display of cookery, mind body and spirit, local interest and poetry to name a few. Our book buyer travels annually to both the London Book Fair and Bologna Book Fair as well as holding regular meetings with the export managers of the best publishers in the world, to hand select the very best books to bring to Bahrain.

Our lovely shop, recently renovated by Frances Stafford, provides the perfect setting in which to enjoy them all. We even have reading nooks and cosy areas where you are welcome to snuggle in and share a book with a little one on our first floor which is entirely dedicated to children’s activity, learning to read, revision, fiction and non-fiction books. After more than 25 years, we are delighted to welcome back young mothers who are now bringing their own babies to introduce them to the wonderful world of books.

In essence, our aim has always been to showcase the very best of children’s literature in a warm and welcoming environment. From award winners to traditional family favourites, you will meet all the most popular characters at The Bookcase; from Winnie the Pooh, to Pepa Pig, Thomas the Tank Engine to Geronimo Stilton.

Teenagers are not forgotten and we take great pains to keep up to date with the latest series, bloggers and Instagram stars, as well as an entire wall of revision materials from Nursery to IB level.

With books selected from over 50 different publishing houses worldwide, we endeavour to keep an unmatched range of titles, with new books arriving weekly, so that no matter your interest, you will find at The Bookcase the books you know you need, and more importantly, the ones you didn’t know you need.
