We have resumed the delivery of books

Update: Monday, 6th April

  • We can place SINGLE BOOK ORDERS with our warehouse for delivery to any address nationally
  • This means we can only deliver one book, per parcel.  
  • You may order books in quantity but they will be sent individually with a £1.50 charge per book.
  • Delivery will use a 48hr tracked service.  A 24 hr service can be requested at an additional cost
  • FREE DELIVERY for single books over £20

Picking and packing single book orders allows a skeleton warehouse staff to work well within the permitted social distancing, keeping everybody safe.  

We appreciate this isn’t very green but the service uses Royal Mail so deliveries are using routes which are already established.  

We are still here to advise and will be making regular posts on social media with our recommendations.

We prefer seeing our customers but needs must so until we can meet again, we would like to offer this service and look forward to hearing from you.

To order

  • Please email us@redlionbooks.co.uk with the title and author (and ISBN if you have it!) of the book or books you are interested in.
  • We will let you know availability and price.
  • At that point, you can confirm your order with your postal address and a request for payment will be sent via PayPal.  You do not need to have a Paypal account to make payment.
  • The range of books that are available through this arrangement is not as great as our normal special order service and stock may be more patchy than usual

Thank you for your patience to date.   

We endeavoured to get books to you, initially on a bicycle but after isolation we relied on our suppliers to send books to you directly.  They faced their own challenges and deliveries were sometimes slower than we had hoped; last week they temporarily suspended orders but have now regrouped and can recommence with a limited but well-considered service which protects the health of their staff.

We will continue to select our monthly, mystery book (known as Underwraps) as well as running our book clubs via the online application ZOOM

We hope you and your families are well and safe.

From all of us at Red Lion Books
