Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

I don’t need a bundle. Can I get an individual book?

Absolutely! You can search for the book you’re looking for, or view all the individual books we have on the site.

We are adding new books every day, but if there’s a particular book you’re looking for that you can’t find on the site, please email us on and we’ll see if we can add it to the site for you.

How do the university reading list bundles work?

We reach out to lecturers who send us the reading lists for the modules they are teaching. We then add them as bundles to the site, offered at a discount. You can buy everything you need to read for a particular module in just a couple of clicks.

Choose your university from the home page and you will see the available reading list bundles. If a reading list you are looking for is not available, please contact us on our Request a Book page, or email us on and we’ll see if we can add it to the site for you.

What if I already have one (or more) of the books in the bundle?

No problem! Our bundles are completely flexible, and you can remove books from the bundle before adding it to your basket. You will still receive the same percentage discount on the remaining books in the bundle.

Is it just for students?

No – we sell individual books to anyone who wants one! We are also exploring the possibility of adding bundles that anyone might be interested in, not strictly corresponding to a reading list. Uni Reading Lists can most obviously mean University Reading Lists but also Unique or Universal Reading Lists!

How long will my order take to arrive?

Please note that due to the coronavirus pandemic and the Christmas period many orders are facing additional delays beyond the periods described below.
Most orders will arrive within 3-5 business days of being placed. Some orders will arrive sooner, or possibly later if there are delays. Most larger orders will be sent by UPS and you should receive tracking information by email, while smaller orders will be sent by Royal Mail.
Sometimes your order will be dispatched in multiple deliveries if some books are more readily available for dispatch than others.
Please note that during the coronavirus pandemic Royal Mail and couriers have faced unpredictable delays.

How much is postage?

Currently, postage is free in the UK and £10 abroad.

Can I cancel or return an order?

Absolutely. If you would like to cancel an order before it is dispatched, or would like to return an order within 30 days of receiving it, please email for a full refund. (Note that items are only accepted for return if they are in perfect condition, unless they arrived damaged).

Who are you?

This website was set up and is run by Jimi Cullen. I was a bookseller until my shop sadly closed permanently during the coronavirus pandemic. I also have some help from a small group of brilliant friends and colleagues!
