Best way to buy Horrible Histories?


Recommended Posts

Amazon IS carrying them. I bought the box-set for my son last week (it was $40-something for 20 books). It shipped from England for only $4-5, and it arrived TODAY! I couldn't believe how quickly it got here :)

 

I just looked at Amazon. Seems they raised the price from when I bought it. Maybe they made a mistake, honored it, and then raised the price. Mine came from Bangzo (the first shipper listed). I will say that even though the price is high, their shipping was extraordinary!

Ray at Horrible Books. He bulk orders from the UK and maintains a small stock. His website announces order and delivery dates regularly. Apx every 2 months? He has the whole Horrible series available as well as a few other British publication. Do note that these versions are in Brit English and may require some translation ie jumper=sweater.

ETA: Ray usually passes on some savings for orders that contribute to his bulk order. This gets a discount off the list price.

:iagree:

Plus Ray is awesome to work with. He's a great guy and I've always been more than satisfied with his customer service.

I always order from Ray. He also sells Galore Park books. His prices are great and his customer services is even better. I have been ordering from him for years now. My packages always come addressed to ____ the Great which my children find endlessly amusing. I suppose once I own all the Galore Park books I need I will start with the horrible historys. He has a certain amount of books that he keeps in stock but her also places orders to England once every other month. I highly recommend him.
