Do you only sell secondhand books?
Generally we only sell secondhand books. All books listed on this site are secondhand unless described otherwise.
My order is over £15.00 but I am being charged postage is this correct?
The free p&p offer only applies to parcels able to be sent by Royal Mail second class post.
