The Turkish Cookbook. Great Service Delivery.
I found and ordered the Turkish Cookbook on Booktopia. Have been looking for this book in English for a while. Ordered from Booktopia, for the first time and was delighted that the book arrived within 3 days of ordering, safe and sound. Easy ordering and navigating the site also.
Quick delivery, packaged well
As mentioned above, it was pretty quick delivery. They have reasonable prices and packaged well. They provided tracking and I received updates daily which was awesome.

Taken on a long journey
The book, To The Edge Of The Solid World, was an emotional roller coaster as I entered the world of a grieving father who gave us his perspective on the loss of children and the grief that follows.
Such good boys
After waiting two weeks for delivery I must note my disappointment. The book is nearly half the size of a standard paperback with small print and poor quality paper. However, living in lockdown you take what you get.

Questions & Answers
I have purchased two books from Booktopia and downloaded the app on to my iPad. I have three issues.
1. Whilst reading I find I’m unable to go back to review or reread a section unless I do it one page at a time
2. Whilst reading one book I am unable to access the other book.
3. How can I cut & paste sections to make notes?
I'm sorry you're having issues with the app. I'll try and answer each of these in turn.
1. You can go between sections when reading by tapping the screen to bring up the top and bottom black bars and tap the three lines in the top bar. This will bring up the chapter and section menu, you can go between each instantly. If you highlight text and leave an annotation you can also instantly go to that section of text by swiping to the annotation tab and selecting the one you want.
2. Yes Kobo does only provide the option of reading one book at a time and doesn't have a split screen option. You do have to exit to the My Books section of the app to go between books. Unfortunately we don't know if or when Kobo may introduce this feature.
3. You can make annotations by highlighting the selected text so that 5 icons appear on the bottom of the screen and clicking on the page icon at the bottom of the screen. This will bring up the option to add a note that you can later use to find the section of text as described earlier.
If you want to copy text to a different app you need to highlight the text so that the 5 icons appear and click on the icon in the bottom right hand corner. This will bring up the Share menu and you can copy the text there. Please be aware that you can only paste 200 characters at a time and it will include an embedded link to the ebook. This is to discourage piracy and cannot be turned off.
I hope this answers your questions. If you have any others please send us a message here, on our website or give us a call.

I’m a professional nature photographer and have self published a coffee table book, selling 500 copies through my website. I still have 500 copies to sell and I would like to get them distributed through Booktopia. Is this possible?
