It feels a bit odd to do another post on books because if you know me at all, I’m just not a bookworm in the slightest. The biggest collection of books I own are cookery ones; these I have a plethora of, but as a result of not wanting to read as a child I encourage Bertie to enjoy them as much as possible. The Book People has some great offers on at the moment and as I know Lucy has been posting Christmas ideas, this gift solution is a great one for all the family.
My favourite find is the Alfie Collection, RRP of £59.90 that they are selling for £9.99 a whopping 83% reduction. Shirley Hughes Dogger is very much loved in our house and her other stories are lovely to read. This package for £9.99 gives you ten of her wonderful books.
For slightly older children they have the Ladybird Read it Yourself Collection of 50 books. RRP of £217.50 down to £35.00 a saving of 83%. This collection includes Classics such as The Three Little Pigs to modern must-haves like Peppa Pig and is aimed at reading levels of 1 – 4.
I’ve just discovered some reading books I read at school as a child, Read with Biff, Chip and Kipper, a 25 book collection aimed at reading levels 1-3. It includes 12 phonic books, 12 storybooks and a parents’ handbook at a price of £14.00 reduced from £123.75. It’s making me feel slightly nostalgic and I’m tempted to put an order in even though my son has only just turned three and isn’t at the reading stage.
Last year I was given a Mary Berry Cookbook, expecting it just to be filled with cakes and sweet recipes I was surprised to discovered it had everything from soup to gravadlax. The ones I have tried have turned out really well and she has a new cookbook Mary Berry Cooks the Perfect, which includes her secrets on crispy crackling and succulent salmon. I really rate and recommend her recipes; they are easy to follow and the results are impressive. RRP of £25.00 but The Book People is selling it for £9.99.
The whole site is making me think everyone in my family will be receiving books for Christmas this year but it’ll be no change for my Father-in-Law. I know he enjoys reading Peter Robinson books and they have a collection of three; Gallows View, A Necessary End and Past Reason Hated all for £4.99, RRP £24.97. I’ve never read any of his books but being a Sunday Times bestselling author I can only assume he’s quite good at his job!
I could go on and on and on with the offers they have but books are such a personal thing I suggest you take a look for yourself to see what you can pick up. Enjoy! I most definitely did.
