“ Bargain Books”

published 29/03/2006

Cheap, good quality, no tie in

Occasional 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...

do 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. As the name suggests, the company sells a good array of books and stationery for all ages. Don’t expect to find the...

It's NOT a CLUB and it gives you loyalty points for buying books. Can you beat that? Who they are? The bookpeople.co.uk are a book company who offer books at discounted prices without the the customer feeling the pinch of belonging to yet another club. Books can be bought without any obligation...

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. (Well, I needed them: my old ones are rather dog-eared). ● Stanley Yelnat's Guide to...

Bloomin' fantastic prices

No e-mail delivery tracking at the moment

Today started off great! In fact, it was better than great, it was, as near as dammit, dash-dang doodlybug fan-flipping-tastic! Why? Because I got a parcel through the post!! Every day starts off great if you get a parcel! (For one thing, it makes a nice change from the endless bills and junk...

How many times have you been in an office, doctors, solicitors etc and seen a pile of book/cuddly toys/stationery etc piled in a corner? Chances are they have been left by the "man in the red van" - otherwise known as The Book People. They deliver a range of their products which they sell at...

“Books at excellent prices”

published 06/03/2001

good selection and prices

sometimes a lack of good books for adults

I have been using the Book People for a long time after having been told about them from one of the parents at the school where I teach. I was pleased to see a large selection of books on a variety of subject areas ranging from books for children for school and quiet reading to humour, sport...

“Bargain book buying”

published 22/10/2000

great price, great service, great delivery

limited selection

The BookPeople is quite simply the best place to buy bargain books. Unlike sites such as Amazon from which you can order any book available, Book People has just a small selection of books, usually hardback books published more than 6 months ago. However, the prices on these books is superb...

The Book People started as an off-line company, selling books by catalogues stuffed in newspapers. Since they went on-line, this has become my preferred way of shopping with them, as I can get hold of books before they hit the catalogue and sell out, as happens frequently. I have some great...

“books galore with no 'club'”

published 24/08/2000

convenient, great range, reliable

slow load pages at times

This is a great site to visit just to see what is on offer, there is something for everyone. You pay for postage but there is no obligation to return ever again although I am sure you will from time to time after seeing what it is like. Books are heavily discounted and the range is quite large...

Excellent value for money

Limited choice

This is about the cheapest book site on the web that I have managed to find. It's easy to navigate, ordering is simple, and the books always arrive in three or four days. Admittedly the selection is limited, it doesn't have a selection as big as the likes of Amazon or Books On Line, but what they...
