About Godley Books

We have been selling mainly non-fiction books for over 20 years and now have a very varied stock of around 10,000 books.

Our delivery company Royal Mail has twice increased overseas prices during 2020, in particular to the USA, so our shipping rates have been amended to reflect this.
