The Book People has gone from strength to strength since being founded in 1988. Read on to find out more about our award-winning family firm and great value books.
We're a name you can trust
An award-winning family firm, the Book People have been bringing high quality books to our customers for over 20 years. With our network of distributors we are part of local communities across the UK and Ireland, while our mail order catalogue and website give you access to a world of books from your living room!
We’re great value
We know that our customers love the Book People’s fantastic prices, and we’re committed to bringing you the best books at amazing discounts. You’ll find our range of exclusive book sets and hand-picked favourites at discounts of at least 50% and often over 75% off the publishers’ prices, because we work with the publishers to come up with excellent deals on the books we know our customers want.
Our great-value book sets are produced just for us – you’ll love our high quality collections of books from classic and bestselling authors and the most popular children’s characters. We’re sure you won’t find these books cheaper, and as we are not a book club you have no obligation to order more than once – although once you see our great products we hope you’ll join our family of customers who shop with us again and again!
We're passionate about books
Cook books, kids’ books, prize-winning novels, gripping thrillers… we love them all and are dedicated to bringing you the best books in every genre. As well as our Book People titles we have greatly expanded our range to bring you a hand-picked selection of over 18,000 new and bestselling books, giving you even more to choose from. Our staff and customer reviews will help you decide what to buy… and remember, our prices are always highly competitive!
We pride ourselves on offering customer service that’s second to none. We use reliable couriers and do all we can to ensure that you’re completely satisfied with your order. If you do have a query you can chat to our customer services team based here in the UK, and they’ll do their best to help.
Regular customers can benefit from our Points Passport loyalty scheme. Place four orders in any 12 month period and benefit from delivery upgrades, exclusive offers and other great benefits. Find out more… Plus, every book you order earns you Book Points, which can be saved up and exchanged for books.
Although we have an enviable reputation we’re always looking for ways to improve what we offer our customers. Whether it’s increasing our range, getting involved in projects to encourage children to read or sponsoring book awards, we never stand still. If you’re into social media you can take advantage of exclusive special offers by joining our Facebook community or following us on Twitter.
