The Book People is a bookseller with heart. Our purpose is to inspire a lifelong love of reading and get the nation falling back in love with the joy of books. We’re on a mission to ensure everyone has access to books. We do this across all our channels and in every way we bring books to you and your community.
Our aim is to give 1 million books to UK schools by 2022 through our flagship programme, Big Book Boost, which gives £1 of every online order over £10 to YOUR local school which they spend on free books.
We are knowledgeable experts who want to share our love of books. We’re happy to help you with any questions you have and will help you find the right books – whether you’re buying for yourself or loved ones. We are able to offer amazing value as we buy direct from publishers, who we’ve worked with for over 30 years, to sell you the best cheap books, gifts and stationery.
You’ll find us online, at one of our pop-up shops at your workplace and at your children’s school when our book fair or unique book bus visits. Wherever you shop, we offer you unrivalled access to a range of inspirational books, gifts and stationery – always up to 70% off RRP.
