Deliveries & Returns


The cost of Standard Delivery in the UK is £3.50 irrespective of size and weight. Orders are sent via Royal Mail and will normally take approximately 3  working days to arrive with you.

We ship each every day except Sundays and UK Bank Holidays.

If your order hasn’t arrived after 5 working days please get in touch on 01273 479320. Remember Royal Mail sometimes leave parcels with neighbours or in a Safe Place, so please check if this has happened.

International Delivery. At the moment we only send parcels within the UK.  We can send Year of Books parcels overseas, but please contact us directly for a price.

BFPO Addresses.  BFPO shipping costs the same as within the UK. The Royal Mail have now allocated postcodes to all BFPO addresses. If you don’t know the right postcode, you can download a list here.


If you want to return something for any reason, provided it is obviously unused, we will replace or refund it.  The item needs to be returned to us within 30 days of purchase please.  Just wrap it up safely and take it to the Post Office.  Please include your name, telephone number and e-mail address so we know who sent it. We ask you to cover the cost of postage.  Our postal address is:

Bags of Books

1 South Street


East Sussex


Or, if you’re local, you can pop along to the shop and do your exchange or refund there.
