What Our Customers Say...

Just a few lines to let you know that I received the books yesterday & I am very pleased with my purchase & delighted with your excellent service throughout.

Jane, UK

Book safely arrived today [Bournemouth], via DHL. Really pleased with this purchase.

Tony, UK

Katherine, many sincere thanks for all of your patience, kindness and generosity. Your professionalism and polite expeditious manner are not so commonplace these days.

Marjory, Canada

My request to Rooke Books was met with professionalism far beyond anything I could have ever expected and the volumes sent to me for my consideration were perfect in every respect.  I eventually landed on a book which was shipped immediately, arrived in perfect condition and allowed me to present a unique and very special gift to my daughter on her 18th birthday.  She was stunned when she opened the present and saw the book.
