"Just good books...cheap but sometimes invisible?"

Just good books' 75% off 6 books introductory offer was just too appealing. I signed up, selected my 6 books and voila they arrived a little more than fortnight later. So far so good. They have no editor's choice, you only have to buy 1 book in the first year of membership- sounds perfect, no?

Well after that it all went downhill. The next set of books arrived 2 months after I ordered them- but hey they sent me a free gift RRP £16.99......nice, but I didn't find it a riveting read. My copy of Harry Potter Order of the Phoenix was pre ordered months in advance, promised to arrive on the day of publishing................halleluleah came at 7am on the correct day.

So it seems that it's hit or miss whether or not your books arrive on time. If you aren't in any hurry to read a particualr book and you just want a cheap supply of reading material- Just good books is for you. If you're a stickler for when you want stuff to arrive then don't even think about JGB- you'll just end up freaking at one of their sales team.

If you email them with a query they take a few days to reply- but they are usually quite helpful. Payment can be made by post, online or by phone- waiting times for phone payments are usually only a few minutes. The automated service for payment is crap to say the least (always experiencing technical difficulties) but it's ok they send you on to a real live talking person!

Selection wise they have EVERYTHING- the magazine they send you is always packed and they always have a free gift if you order. The gifts may not be very useful or be books that you read but hey FREE is the best price right?

Join JGB, get the freebies and buy one other book and you're all done. You have your bargain- anything after that- just make sure you're prepared to wait for the books you order.

    I would have liked to have seen JGB's address, website and tel. number added to this review. Otherwise you wisely declined to rant and rave, despite apparent provocation, which I can only applaud.
