The Book People Customer Reviews

Got a jump start on Christmas shopping

I went on The Book People's site to order the latest Nora Roberts, but I spotted a book on the home page called Keep Calm for Christmas and thought it was fantastic. I'm always stressed out at the holiday season, but my mum takes the cake for starting rows when the family's over to celebrate. I thought this would be a bit of a cheeky gift for her this year and a nice reminder to behave herself - who knows, maybe next Christmas she'll put some of the tips to use? The price was great (under 4 quid) which was a good deal off retail. As usual I'm pleased with the discounts from The Book People, and looking forward to receiving my new books.

An old favourite of mine - unusual books for low prices!

I first discovered the Book People when someone came into the office which I work in with some books for us to look at. I ordered two cookbooks then and they quickly became my favourite ones. When my daughter asked if I could get her a copy of one of them a year or so later because she liked it so much, I couldn't find it anywhere on the highstreet, or from the usual online retailers like Amazon. So I was stuck. That's when I found out that The Book People were online and I could get it from them! So I ordered and I've been back time and time again ever since.

Not only are the books a reasonable price and often cheaper than I can find elsewhere, but they often have unusual books too that I might not be able to get in shops on the high street. Their Food & Drink section is particularly good. I usually manage to save up my purchases so they're often quite big. I think it's great that when you spend over £25 you qualify for free delivery. I feel very loyal to them as a brand because I get these little treats every time I buy! My only criticism is that shipping sometimes takes longer than they have specified. Generally that isn't too much of a problem for me though so I'm happy to keep going back. I would recommend The Book People!

Shopping Tips for The Book People

Offers and deals for you

Free delivery

All orders placed on the Book People website which add up to more than £25 are delivered for free via standard delivery which takes 3-5 working days to arrive in the UK and 5-7 working days to arrive in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Islands. With this in mind, if your order falls just short of the £25 mark and you are (or the person you’re buying for is) an avid reader, it’s worth adding a couple more books into your basket so your total order qualifies for free delivery.
