Come into my house at any point and you can normally have a good guess at what time of the year it is based on how many boxes of books from The Book People I have under my bed:
- 0 boxes = January – June
- 1 box = July – September
- 3 boxes = October – November
- 47 boxes = December
It’s approximate, but fairly accurate.
If you’ve never shopped with the Book People before, let me give you a quick overview – it’s books, but they are really cheap. Not in a bargain basement way either – no knocked off Jordan autobiographies – it’s proper decent books, just at low prices. They’re well known too for their sets of books, which are even better value. Normally I spend around £40 in any transaction, and get what would be over £100 of books.
It’s fair to say then that this is a FLAME GRILLED WHOPPER of a prize. With extra cheese. £100 at The Book People will take you straight to November on my Book People timeline, starting from zero.
There are thousands and thousands of books for sale, but here are a few things to whet your reading appetite:
The ENTIRE Man Booker Prize shortlist is currently available for £30 (RRP £85.94)
The Times Concise Atlas of the World is just £19.99 (RRP £90)
The Usborne Big Picture Atlas is just £3.99 (RRP £14.99). I’ve bought this as a present for someone already because I love Usborne books.
