What Our Customers Say...

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

Tony, UK

It arrived! Thank you so much for following up - one happy reader tomorrow for his birthday!

Mary, Ireland

 I’m delighted with the book (so long sought after). And I will keep Rooke Books in mind.

Michiel, The Netherlands

Just to let you know my signed by the grand daughters, limited edition of Stories from Dickens arrived safely in Melbourne this morning. Considering that I only placed the order on 24th March, 5 days ago, I am again astonished at your fantastic prompt and safe delivery of a well protected book in a DHL box half way across the world.

Many, many other leading book dealers around the world come nowhere close to your efficient dispatch and delivery service.
