The Eagles by Andrew Vaughan

published

I had been looking online for a copy of this book at a reasonable price for several months and finally found one. After one month and I still had not received it World of Books sent me a full refund. The very next day to my surprise the book arrived and it was in very good condition as advertised. I believe the delivery was probably delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and I forwarded full payment again. I would happily recommend World of Books.

Great service

published

I have just received the book I ordered, 'Audrey's Old Man' by Dorothy Baird - well-packaged - after a delay caused by the disruptions to postal services world-wide due to corona.
I had initially been concerned because the book had not arrived more quickly and hoped it had not been delayed in the post. An email to World of Books was answered immediately and encouraged me to be patient.
I happily recommend World of Books to others. I love the fact that I could find an old book published in 1906 through them.

Still waiting 4 weeks later

published

Still waiting 4 weeks later. Why? I am waiting for my book to arrive which was ordered and paid for on 20 March 2020. I presume the delay is due to 'the virus' holding up postage. I am confident it will arrive in due course?

In my experience with World of Books most of my purchases have arrived around the time that was specified. Occasionally an item might arrive the day after the specified time. If I have been concerned I have contacted World of Books and they have always answered my concerns promptly. Usually it has been suggested to wait a couple of more days after the specified date as often the postal service is the reason for the delay. World of Books have always asked me to let them know if the item fails to arrive as it can then be addressed.

Hi Ros, count on ten days if you live interstate in a rural location. Australia Post will keep you updated on line through their tracking system. My last order arrived in my post office box here in rural SA right on the tenth day.
