About Us


Hello from The Pepper Express team! The Pepper Express is Red Pepper Book Company’s official blog.

Red Pepper Book Company is a leading online bookstore based in Johannesburg, South Africa. We started out in 1998 as a specialist library supplier to corporate, government and academic libraries in South Africa. Our business has grown exponentially over the years and we are able to supply in excess of 6 million books, both in and out of print, to customers all over the world.

Whatever it is that you require, we will hunt it down and deliver it to your door.

We have real, reachable book-experts (fleshy human beings) working behind the scenes to meet your every book need, so, if you’re stuck, we’re just a phonecall or an e-mail away. No automated e-mail response forms to complete or robotic voices guiding you through a mesh of a beaurocracy and red tape before cutting you off – the Internet can be impersonal enough and we are making it our mission to set ourselves apart from the rest of “them”.

Our blog was developed as our official soapbox where you can keep up to date with the latest happenings in the world of books. Please feel free to add your comments, suggestions and expertise. Specific requests can be directed to our marketing team at marketing@rpbc.co.za

Happy biblio-blogging!
