Book Book is a rural community in the central east part of the Riverina. It is situated about 12 km (7 mi) north of Kyeamba and 15 km (9 mi) south of Ladysmith.

The area now known as Book Book lies on the traditional lands of the Wiradjuri people.

Book Book exists now only through a set of old tennis courts and the telephone exchange that sits just off the Tumbarumba road. The tennis courts were used by a local tennis club. There was also a village hall at which dances and other social events were held. There were also Anglican church services held there.

There was a public school at Book Book that first opened, as a 'half-time' school, in October 1924 and closed in December 1987.
