The shipping costs to overseas countries are very low. I only find one thing a bit annoying. When I go to the site and immediately start typing in my search, it adds it to the end of an information line in the search window, i.e. it adds it after "Enter your title/author/ISBN here". Then my search finds nothing. If I wait a bit so that it can first finish doing its thing, then type my search, the search window is first automatically cleared of "Enter your title/author/ISBN here" and all is well. But I usually forget this and have to type it again (or delete the irrelevant characters).
The only thing that is a bit akward it that the search engine is temperamental and not very reliable. But otherwise: excellent!
Being able to buy more books so cheaply means that I'm able to buy more books, I'm happy!
thank you my dear for a chance to read so many wonderful English books in far away Siberia, thanks for shipping to Siberia at such a low cost:)
I am always checking out the books and I'm always thrilled to find really great books; delivery is fast!
Fabulous is all I can say!
I was lucky enough to find Awesome Books on the internet. I found a great range, easy to use ordering and payment methods and have managed to acquire a large number of books that were on my wanted to read list. It is a favourite site for book-buying.
I spend a lot of time recomending Awesome Books to as many people as possible - I love their selection pricing and the free shipping to New Zealand is a positive that can't be beat - on the occasional time there has been a problem with a book - it is cleared up straight away - on their mailing list is a touch scary too for a bibliomaniac like myself - they sometimes offer discounts on their already amazing low prices.
Finding Awesome Books was one of the best finds of my life - a bit like finding Richard the Third - but a whole lot surer.
Thanks for the chance to rave about AB in public - it's appreciated
I'm very satisfied with the service and products.
Only one thing I don't like: web track order shows a message dispatched, but this is ths last status. It'd be better to add other status like "in transit" or "delivered".
I have been a buyer from Awesomebooks for years. I've always found them to be highly professional, everything arrives on time and as ordered. I had one order where the book arrived damaged and I reimbursed immediately. I recommend you use them too
I have been ordering from AwesomeBooks for years and would recommend them to everyone. I live in the United States and love the fact that shipping on 2 or more items is free and they have the best prices on used and new books. You can't go wrong by ordering from AwesomeBooks. They are the best.
I have used this company on numerous occasions. Prices are reasonable and delivery times acceptable. Any problems are dealt with immediately and I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.
I have managed to obtain a long list of books, some of them out of print, at great prices. Eventhough some of the books are old and pre-read, they come to me in a good condition. The best part of it is that I have them delivered to me without my having to go searching at my local bookstores. I maintain a list in the "Wish List" which I update periodically when I hear or readabout of some titles or authors. I live in Toronto and many of the books are of British origin and hence difficult to find in North America. The payment process is easy and the customer support is excellent.
Books arrive promptly & it's a gamble you take as to ex-library or not (you're not told in the description). Packaging is a major let down (see the Facebook page) & I'm sure many buyers would prefer to have a "pay for bubble wrapping etc" option, I know I would.
I have been buying from Awesome books for a couple of years. I've bought dozens and dozens of books and I have not had the slightest hitch or complaint in any purchase. I am continually surprised that they can deliver a book so cheaply. I recommend them unreservedly.
Goedkope boeken en prima service . Ik heb vanaf dec. 2011 meer dan 100 boeken bij hun gekocht en het is een paar keer voorgekomen dat een boek niet aankwam of het verkeerde boek werd geleverd , maar ik heb altijd probleemloos mijn geld terug gekregen .
Great website, always helpful, really nice and good books¡
The books I buy from the used section are as described and arrive in about a week, but recently the change to flimsy plastic envelopes mean the corners become bashed on the way. What happened to the more environmentally friendly card envelopes which protected the books better? Also if you want your books quicker order them singly a few days apart as they come with the postman, two or more are sent with other carriers and they can take up to two weeks to arrive.
If I had just purchased new books, I'd say the experience was 5 stars. The books came quickly (although strangely they all came separately). Unfortunately the used book with CD I ordered came without a CD and pages were torn nearly in half! I did receive a full refund for the book, but it seemed as though the friendly staff didn't even look at my order information because they offered me an option to return the book as though I was in the UK or Europe rather than in North America where I live and had the books shipped to. Which is why only 3 stars.
What could be better than a wide range of books in good condition for ~3€, free shipping and a regular delivery time of just one week to Portugal?
I've been doing business with AwesomeBooks for around 6 months and it's been all around an extremely satisfying experience. Not only is the offer great, but customer service is also very quick and efficient.
My bookshelf has grown immensely within the past half year due to this website, making me a very happy bookworm. Can't recommend it enough!
I like awesomebooks because it has big assortment. And delivery takes max 2 weeks and I live in Russia. Also the quality of the books is great even the used ones. I will continue to order form AwesomeBooks.
I was able to get three books which my sister had asked for, which had proved quite difficult to come by, and have them posted to Australia (free postage!!) for less than £10. Amazing!! She had them within 10 days of me placing the order and she confirmed that they were in good condition even though they were second hand. Awesome Books will be my first port of call when I am looking for any books in the future; they couldn't be faulted.
Like everywhere the base price of books has gone up noticeably to me from about $2.90 in 2010 to $4.35 today and while it is not an extraordinary jump...it is significant in a world where, for me, used books are the only reasonable option.
Shipping is extraordinarily fast most times although packaging has always been a weak feature with packages containing multiple books OFTEN arriving partially torn open...sometimes enough to release their contents.
The only other 'less-than-perfect' feature is the occasional shortfall in quality control.
Substandard books still get shipped as well as softcovers instead of the ordered hardcover ( in my case ).
Generally however, I am VERY pleased with the books and will continue to be a regular customer.
One feature I would like to see is a customer loyalty programme with, perhaps an incentive of 1 free book for every 15 or so purchased.....good for the high volume buyer like myself.
I have bough 100+ books from awesomebooks on the last year alone. At the beginning I was even a little bit suspicious by the very afforable prices, but I can only say that I have always been very happy. Price are extremely competitive, lots of used books and in a few days they are delivered free of charge. Definitively a site to reccomend. Only possible improvable aspect is the very limited choice of available books in Italian.
Awesome Books give excellent service. I don't know how they manage to sell such good quality1 books at such low prices. And what is really good -if you buy 2 or more Shipping to Spain is free.
