To continue trying to encourage our customers to use our own site for purchases, we have decided to continue the practice during 2016, as we did in 2015, that 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, can have a 10% discount if they wish. 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).
Girls Gone By Books - Sale
If you are a regular customer you may be aware that we stock the new books published by Girls Gone By, the publishers of Young Adult scarce girls titles from years gone by.
For various reasons we do have some of these books that we sell below the RRP of 13.00GBP. To help you find these I have made a new category. The usual Category for Girls Gone By Books is to look in Categories under Juvenile - New Books - Girls gone By. To find these cheaper books, look under Juvenile - New Books - Girls Gone By - Sale. We hope you find something of interest here for you. You might want to risk a new author at a cheaper price!
We usually have in Stock some 'Specials' which are a little more difficult to catalogue, and so have decided to call them just that - Specials! You will find them under the Topic heading of specials and an example of one is given below. They are something interesting, and just a bit out of the ordinary.
This is a 'Special' - because not only is it a scarcer title of Diana Ross' Books in dustwrapper (a 2nd impression, 1955 our book reference 91329), but as can be seen, the author and illustrator - the same person, made it very special indeed when she chose to give it to 'Ann & her family' and not only put a long gift inscription inside, but more importantly but a super little sketch inside. If you wish to purchase this unique little treasure it is £75.00 on our site.
*We are 'old-fashioned' booksellers who used to have a book shop whilst we could make it pay.
*We ARE happy to discuss the books, their content and/or 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.
