How to Buy Books

Buying a book from Boomerang Books is simple!

Searching for a book

Enter the desired title, author or keywords into the search box (top of the page) and hit the magnifying glass button to search.  A list of books that match your search criteria will be displayed. 

For your convenience, you can choose to display the search results in a grid format (default), list format or in text format.  You can also sort by Best Match (default), Bestsellers, Most Recently Published, Price Low to High, Price High to Low, Title A-Z, Title Z-A, Author A-Z and Author Z-A.

Scroll through the results and select the title that you wish to purchase.  You will be taken to the individual book page.

If you can't find what you are looking for with the standard search, you can use our Advanced Search function.

Ordering a book

To place your order, click on the 'Add to Cart' button and you will be taken to your shopping cart.  Here you can review your purchases and, if necessary, make changes to your order.

Deleting a book . If you decide that you don't want a particular title, simply click the 'Delete' button next to the title.

Ordering multiple copies. If you want to change the number of copies you want to buy of a particular title, highlight the number in the 'Quantity' box, type in the number of copies you require, and the price will update automatically.


When you are happy with your order, click on 'Checkout'.  You will be prompted to create an Account or to login as an existing Account Holder.

If you are not already an Account Holder, it's free to sign up, it only takes a minute, and there are some great benefits - including a free $5 credit for first time customers.

As an Account Holder, you only need to enter your personal information (name, address, etc.) for your first purchase from Boomerang Books. On subsequent visits, you will only need to enter your email address and password.

Confirmation and Payment

Once you have entered your account and delivery details, you're given the option to redeem Gift Vouchers, redeem Boomerang Bucks loyalty dollars, or enter a Promotional Code. You will also be able to select gift wrapping if your order is a gift.

Finally, you will be prompted to make payment.  You can use a variety of payment methods.


Once payment has been made, you will be sent an order confirmation and tax invoice via email, and your books will be delivered as soon as possible.
