The book people online. Fantastic. So good that you'll get loads and be able to give them as presents at parties as well.

I buy most of mine in charity shops and jumble sales. If you are prepared to look a bit, you can usually find books in A1 condition. I put some in my children's stockings this year and none of them noticed they were second hand, that is how good they were.

Places like Borders sell books at reduced prices, and also have three for two on a lot of children's books. If you have a branch of The Works near you, they have remaindered stock and new releases at discount prices, too.

Wilkinsons, Matalan, Asda all do lots of lovely books that are very cheap.

Another vote for The Book People , they are excellent.

You can't do links to particular items but if you search using the three letter codes, you can check out

ZPI 10 great picture books for £5!!

JUX Gruffalo Set (Gruffalo, Monkey Puzzle, Smartest Giant in Town & A Squash and a Squeeze) in a box set for £8.99

Also, you collect book points with each order and every now and then have enough to get a book for free. I don't work for them, just love them!!

MSZ for 8 Maisy books for £8.99

They look good but is there a catch like they send you book that you havent ordered or you have to buy a certain amount of books a year?

blossomhill Wed 29-Dec-04 19:53:00

How about the pound shop as well. They have books in there such as pop up ones

No catch re The Book People other than deliveries are slowish (7-10 days). Definitely nothing hidden.

I use The Book People and Red House as they have great bargains and no commitments - The Book People is especially good. I also use Amazon a lot.
