I thought it high time indeed that I finally wrote to supply feedback on the quite excellent service I always receive from Rooke Books whever I place an order. The service has always been of the highest quality and care for the customer's needs, particularly your attention to detail and in my case in observing my requirements for the timing of delivery by DHL to fall on a particular day.

In addition, I am very impressed with the high quality of packaging and presentation. meaning all books are properly protected in transit. Thank you so much - it is a real pleasure shopping with you.
