Book People, the Reviews
Description:Book club with large reductions.
Newest Review: ... "high street" price. You can also buy in the workplace if a Book People van visits your place of work (This works by them leaving some books which people can buy and them then returning for the money a week or two later), although I prefer to use the catalogue or go online. TV tie-ins, cookery books and children's books make up a big selection of their stock, although you will also ... more

I love reading and I buy a lot of books, and The Book People are one of my favourite companies to buy from. Unlike Amazon they don't promise to stock every single book that has been released - instead concentrating on the most popular books. You can buy online from the website or from their cute little mail order catalogue which gets sent out every few weeks, and the savings are huge with books sold at a fraction of the "high street" price. You can also buy in the workplace if a Book People van visits your place of work (This works by them leaving some books which people can buy and them then returning for the money a week or two later), ...

Remember those mail order book clubs years ago (they probably still exist) where you'd have to buy so many books a year/month, or get sent the book of the month and subsequently get charged for it after forgetting to send it back on time? No matter how tempting the offers, there was always a catch and I for one was always caught out. Well, The Book People is not one of these clubs! I have been buying from this company for years and have never been let down. I started buying from them through work- a nice man would bring a selection of books once in a while, we'd order and receive them the following week - simples! I then started receiving their catalogues and ... Read the complete review

The good thing about thebookpeople.co.uk is that yes they do offer very good deals on books. however be aware that their systems cannot cope with the fast pace of the online markets. Not only did it take them the best part of a week just to process my order, they took another few weeks to get it out to me. I even had to continually contact them to ensure that they were processing my request and then took a lot of time to get back to me. I will not be shopping with them again and I would advise anyone who does to be prepared to wait for a long time until they recieve their order! certainly did not meet any of my expectations. avoid the hassle and buy elsewhere.

I first discovered the book people about 5 years ago when they came to my office. I could not believe how cheap the books were - often around 75% off the RRP. If they come to your place of work they alway have a good selection of books, both for children and adults. Importantly, they also take credit cards even when out on the road, so you don't need to have a lot of spare cash on you. The book people's website is excellent. You can filter the books in a variety of ways to help you track down the publication you are after. The selection of children's books is always excellent and it's a great site to visit if you are looking for gift inspiration. For very ... Read the complete review

The Book People have to rate as one of my all-time best finds! I came across one of their booklets (not really big enough to be called a catalogue!) about 10 years ago and have been a faithful and delighted customer ever since. This is NOT a book club - you never have to buy anything! In a nutshell, they sell heavily-discounted books - but unlike some of the discount book stores you find, these are often recent, popular books you actually want to read. The stock is not huge, but it is ever-changing, and they have some great sales too. The best deals for me have been in three main areas: The first is what I would call 'coffee ...
