FAQs

Do you purchase second hand books?

We only purchase used books in bulk so if you have a few we will probably not be interested. If you have a significant quantity then please contact us.

Are you open to the public?

Unfortunately not. We have a warehouse with over 700,000 books that are organised in a way that makes it fast for us to dispatch internet orders, but this makes them very difficult to browse for the general public.

Do you sell brand new books?

We generally only sell second hand books but we do, on rare occasions receive books in new condition.

Are your product photo’s the actual item?

Unfortunately, due to the volume of second hand books we have it is impossible for us to take photograph’s of every single book so we use stock images for all of our used books. If you have a question about a specific book please feel free to contact us.
