We’re Becoming More Interactive…..

Here at BFS, we strive to keep the site as user friendly and informative as possible and to this end we have introduced three new features.

Product Reviews

For some time now it has been possible to review our service on our Facebook page. This allows buyers to comment on the standard of service that Books From Sharon (BFS) provided and acts as a way to inform other potential buyers in the same way that feedback does on any buying / selling site.

In addition to the seller reviews we have now introduced product reviews. If you have enjoyed a book then why not tell others? It’s easy to do by clicking on the ‘write a review’ link at the bottom of each product page.

You will be asked to enter a user name which will be published and your email address which will NOT be shown. Below is an example of a completed review;


Price Comparison at a Glance

The second new addition to the site is a price comparison. Where the RRP is printed on the book, you will now be able to see at a glance how much you save by purchasing from BFS.

This feature shows up in the gallery menu,


the list menu


and on the product page


As you can see, for higher amounts, the savings only show whole £s.

This is being introduced across the store but it will take a while for all genres to be included.

PLEASE NOTE; The price comparison will not apply to stock in the Bargain Basement.

Check Out The Changes


My daughter and I have been working very hard to make some site updates over the past few weeks and I can now reveal the three big changes.


First….. Following the survey conducted in the New Year, the BFS site is now populated with stock phots and I must admit that it looks better. Thank you to everyone who contributed.


Second…… The Bargain Basement books now have a more specific description, as follows;

Condition – Unread/shop damaged.
External shop damage or age wear.
Unbroken spine
Clean, undamaged reading surfaces
No missing or loose pages
Generally tidy appearance.


Third….. We sell a wide range of material including erotic fiction and relationship non-fiction but it is important that we do not cause offence and that we are considerate of people who may browse the site in the company of their children.  To this end, any book that has an explicit cover picture will now appear in the search results with a plane red, text only image.  Full book details will still be available within the listing but the adult nature of the book will be clear.


I wish to finish by saying a big  THANK YOU to my daughter for all her hard work on the site and to my son for his invaluable support and patient lessons in how to use Adobe and other software to make my life easier.  I couldn’t do this without them.

So now I am ready for the new stock that is arriving tomorrow.

To view the changes and see what is currently available in stock, just click …..HERE…… to visit the shop.

Aren’t These Just the Cutest?

Lots of new items added today including:

Also added is a collection of classic crime and some really quirky stationery.

And finally……  I have a few copies of Crime & Punishment by GF Newman left in stock. During the past 2 weeks I have sold about 80 copies and when these are gone I cannot obtain more.  As a popular out of print title, they are selling on all sites for well above their original cover price but I have put a few aside for BFS customers.  They can be purchased on the website for cover price of £7.99 (inc. UK p&p) while stocks last.
