Bargain Books

AdvantagesCheap, good quality, no tie in

DisadvantagesOccasional delivery problems, limited range

"The Book People I first happened upon the book people at work. They had left a selection of cheap, yet good quality books, along with the web address, and I placed my first order. I thought that this was a book club, where you get your first few books for a very reasonable price and then read the small print and find you are tied in for the next few years.

Try Not To Break Their Spines

AdvantagesGosh-darned cheap, small but comprehensive selection, excellent customer service.

DisadvantagesHeadache-inducing website colours, not all special offers available online.

" Today, my parcel from thebookpeople was rather a good one. It contained: ● Set of ten books by John Steinbeck in Penguin Classics at £9.99. The published price for these books is a whopping £77.90.

books, books and more books

Advantagesfree delivery for purchases over £25.00, gift delivery service

Disadvantagesdo not stock the latest releases

"I was first introduced to The Book People via their mail order service, which has now been running over 10 years. I was delighted to discover they also had an on-line service.

I Shall Get Lost In Books As Well Then

AdvantagesBloomin' fantastic prices

DisadvantagesNo e-mail delivery tracking at the moment

"...Yey!!!!!!!!!! All in all, is the best online bookstore I’ve shopped at!! It trounces the prices on Amazon, and every single time I look at it, I see something new I want! Most bestsellers are heavily discounted here and their collections offer fantastic value for money. I really should’ve just gone back to bed with my books this morning as the rest of the day turned out to be pretty awful; I was terminated!!!! Well, ..." Read review
