What are hand-picked favourites?

Book People has over 100,000 great value books, gifts, toys and stationery available on our website, through Book People Local distributors and Book People Events. Using their knowledge of the products you love, our experts use their years of experience to hand-pick thousands of items from our extensive library and offer them to you with savings of up to 75% off RRP.

Why are hand-picked favourites cheaper than other products?

Unlike other high street and online booksellers, Book People's experts use their knowledge of what you love to buy our range of hand-picked favourites in bulk directly from publishers and suppliers. This means that we get the products you want for less... and we pass the savings on to you every time. While our extensive range will always offer great value and variety, our hand-picked favourites are the products we are passionate about - from classic children's books to award-winning fiction, exclusive collections, tasty recipe books and much, much more.

How can I tell which products are hand-picked favourites?

To make it as clear as possible which products have been carefully chosen by our experts, you will find the following icon on the product page of each and every hand-picked favourite, and in search results when you're browsing our extensive range. Think of it as Book People's seal of approval!
