      I love this web site. I have been an avid reader since I was a small child. I live in Australia and books are so expensive here so it is fantastic to be able to order books at reasonable prices with free delivery. Brilliant!

      A collection of Christmas books is just what our house needs! With a 2 year old recognising Santa, presents and excited over new and exciting things such as Christmas decorations it would be fantastic to have some great books to read with him... We also have had to listen to carols all year on the iPad so books would be a welcome respite :-)

      I'm obsessed with reading. I go through 25-40 books a month, depending on how i feel. At Christmas, we sit together and read a book filled with great stories. This book went missing two years ago and we haven't found another book containing all the great christmas stories. Ive searched everywhere with no luck.

      Six white boomers is also a good book and children enjoy singing along with the words. Please remember that many of us don't live anywhere near a city - when you live a long way from the shops it is so good to be able to order online.

      I've just sent my sister a book for her birthday purchased here that I couldn't find in my country. She loved it and I'm happy to have found it. I'm from Serbia and she is in Austria. Great selection, great prices.

      The Book Depository has a magnificent selection of books. They are reliable and deliver quickly as promised if books are in stock. They search out hard to find books and keep you informed about your order. My grandchildren's excitement with each delivery is testament to the quality of the books.

      I am so enjoying buying my Grandson all the best picture books through Book Depository. Your list of books is unbeatable for quality and price. I have bought him his own bookcase with a 'surprise' drawer at the bottom in which I can hide a new book for each time he comes.

      Excellent service with free shipping. I have 11 grandchildren living in US, UK, NZ and I live in Australia. I have always given them a book for their birthdays but the postage has become too expensive. You have solved my problem and are saving me a lot of money. Thank you.
