Hasn't got every book, surcharge for some areas

Mirroring Nar words of wisdom... Hello and welcome to the review that should have been here. It was here but its not here now as I have taken it and put it into my private stash somewhere else. It may well appear somewhere else online and if it does it will have my name on it. Thank you to...

“bargains galore”

published 09/05/2003

low prices, no commitment, excellent choice

none that i have experienced so far

As an English literature degree student, I am always buying books (but of course I hear you cry!) And, being a student, I’m always on the look out for a bargain. So, now for the science part: books + bargains = thebookpeople.co.uk. I could finish my op on that proven scientific formula but I...

I had delivery problems

You know that moment when you take the Sunday papers through to the dining room? The first thing I do is take out all the fliers and put them in the paper recycling. This lightens the load considerably and you’re no longer in danger of dropping a TruPrint envelope into your toast and...

Very cheap books

none

Ever since the printed word was invented, people have loved to read. Fact or fiction, educative or not, we have swarmed by the millions to buy more and more. It has mattered not a jot that we are now in a digital age and can download huge chunks of text not to say whole books from the Internet...

“A good site for bookworms.”

Absolutely none.

I am a person that absolutely loves books, and I love a bargain even more - so put the two together and I’m in heaven. I’ve had experience of three book clubs so far: - World Books - I wouldn’t recommend joining, as there is a commitment and it’s just not worth the hassle...

“Bookworms favourite people!”

published 09/08/2005

Straight to your door no messing!

So many books so little time!

A little over 2 years ago I was given a leaflet by my mum who knows the amount of money I spend on books. She assumed (rightfully) that I would be able to save some cash and still keep up with my literary addiction. I have now become totally addicted to my monthly fix of top quality, bargain...

I have been a regular customer of the book people now for over two years. They have a wide variety of quality books ranging from children's titles to reference. I enjoy purchasing the book people's special edition box sets where you can pick up, for example, ten books in a series that would...

I can't remember how I first got introduced to The Book People, but for two or three years now I've looked forward to seeing their catalogue in the post every couple of months. The Book People don't call themselves a 'book club' as they don't ask people to join up, they don't have any minimum...

“Cheapest way to buy books”

published 11/12/2004

Cheap!

Don't stock all books

The book people have a mail order monthly magazine, a web page and also deliver a limited selection to work places. They always have a good selection of books in the monthly magazine and even more on the web page at really great prices. Delivery is reasonably priced and quick. I always buy more...

Low priced books, no tie ins, good book packs

None so far

I discovered the book people through my friend. We are both avid readers and were constantly complaining that we could never find cheap books anywhere. Then we found the book people. They produce a brochure of all different types of books from children's through to fiction and a whole range of...

Not for me

published 15/09/2008

We ordered books for our daughter's birthday and for party bags allowing plenty of time. Books did not arrive. No contact from the book people. Re rang them to be told that the books were "still in the warehouse because there had been a delay". They woudl not tell us why, simply crossly saying that they "were busy". When we asked to speak to someone who coudl tell us when they would arrive the lady hung up. When we askd a second lady when they would arrive, explainin that we had needed them for the birthay she said "whell you obviously did not need them for the birthday if you still want them now".

I have ordered from the Book People several times. Great if ordering a lot as Free P&P if spending more than £25 , but expensive if want just 1 item. I find ordering quick and easy, website easy to navigate and a good choice. Items arrive quickly too
