We have decided to continue trying to encourage our customers to use our own site for purchases, and so the offer of 10% discount for anyone who decides to buy their book/s here, rather than buying it from one of the agencies that stocks our books such as ABE or amazon, stays throughout 2017. To do this just use the code PBST2 when you make your purchase. (You may only use 1 voucher offer per purchase, so please do not try and use this along with another code).
Stuck for an idea for Christmas? As well as our usual huge range of books, we have come across the following item from 'times gone by'. These were produced in 1946 by a Norwich Publisher for a Norfolk Author who has become more famously known for writing the George Gently Crime series that has recently been televised (and the location changed on TV). Anyhow, I digress.. Alan Hunter wrote a book called The Norwich Poems. He called them 'his attempt to sketch in verse something of the aspect, Legends & Noteables of the City'. We have been fortunate enough to acquire a few of the 2nd edition copies of these (1946) that were never sold, and so are in unread excellent condition, and the decorated Christmas Envelopes that they were intended to be posted out in as Christmas Presents - also never used. They were produced in 8vo paperback with dustwrapper form and we have just put them on our website for sale - just look them up in quick search in the usual way. We are selling them at £28.00 each - and would make a lovely Christmas present for someone.
We are old fashioned book sellers that used to have a physical second hand book shop whilst we could make it pay. Now we trade by Internet and PBFA book fairs.
*We ARE happy to discuss the books, their content and/their condition with customers on the telephone (01328 829944) or by e-mail (email@example.com) because we work full time in the business and we can simply go and get the books off the shelves to answer your queries.
