Books as Gifts - FAQs

What sort of book should I buy?

If you don't have a list of books that you know that your gift recipient might want, then you should consider buying them a special copy of a book that you know they already love! Why not a copy of their favorite book signed by the author, or a box set of their favorite series?

Once I've decided on which book to buy, what should I look for when choosing which copy?

Biblio is a marketplace made up of thousands of independent booksellers with used, rare, and out of print books. Since each seller sets their own descriptions for the items that they list you should read the listing details carefully to ensure that you get a book in a decent condition to give as a gift. It is probably a good idea to look for books in Very Good - Like New range, and to avoid ex-library copies.

Can I have the book delivered directly to the recipient?

Of course, as long as you have their correct address in the "shipping address" fields during the checkout process. Just make sure your own mailing address is in the "billing address" fields or the order might not go through!

What if I still can't decide?

That's ok. It can totally be overwhelming to choose the perfect book gift, but we've got you covered. Send a BiblioBucks Gift Certificate by email or by mail to them instead and let them decide for themselves!
