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.


Latest Stock

Want to know what we’ve added since your last visit? It’s now easy to see what’s new in because it will automatically be updated on our home page.

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.

Sales, Christmas Returns & More

You may have noticed that BFS now has a ‘Sale/Special Offer’ section which was introduced to highlight the pre-Christmas flash sales.  However,  I have decided that this will become a permanent feature and will showcase an ever changing range of items that are on special offer.  As the books featured will change frequently it is worth checking back on a regular basis to see what’s new ………  SALE/SPECIAL OFFERS

Black Friday is coming.  OK, so I know that for the big players Black Friday has become a black two weeks, but here at BFS we are doing our bit.  Get ready for an announcement Thursday night.

Christmas purchases and returns.  BFS offers a 30 return policy but I am aware that when people purchase for Christmas the 30 days may be over before the recipient has had a chance to receive and open their gift.    If you have given someone the same book as someone else and the 30 days is over, what then?  Well don’t worry.  If you purchase from BFS between now and Christmas, you will have until end of Jan to initiate a change of mind return.  Please see our terms & conditions for full details of policy ……  T&C POLICY
