COVID-19 AND OUR BOOKS Even though our London shop has yet to re-open we have been cataloguing new books every day since the pandemic crisis began. We ve adjusted our working practices and environment to keep our staff and customers safe and are committed to maintaining and growing our service as much as we can. Our friends at The Royal Mail are great as usual, and we re happy to keep them busy at the time of writing. We re getting lots of orders and enquiries and are working as hard as ever, even though the person who processes the paperwork for orders, the pickers and the packers shouldn t be closer than two metres from each other; and every keypad and door handle is being disinfected to oblivion. However, the crisis has led to a reduction in global freight, causing price rises for all international orders. In addition, the USA has imposed extraordinary price rises for imported mail, up to 400% on books, which we have to pass on. Two years ago, the USA was our cheapest destination to post to. Now it s the most expensive in the world for the average book! Despite these changes, we also acknowledge that ALL deliveries will be slower than our normal rapid standard, although we re unaware to what extent for each parcel. We re happy to receive direct e-mails, phone calls and all queries on our books. PsychoBabel Books in Oxfordshire, and Skoob Books in London (Russell Square Tube) are run and owned by Chris Edwards operating as a sole trader. We have bought all of our books and take great care with the storage and listing of each one. As well as over 88,000 listings we have nearly 100,000 in our London shop and probably five times as many awaiting attention in the warehouse. Currently listing a spectacular military and 20th century history collection in pristine condition. We have been selling with a five star rating continuously since 2003 on AbeBooks. PsychoBabel and Skoob buy from private individuals and prestigious libraries. We are NOT 'barcoders' but dedicated book lovers offering an excellent service. We enjoy receiving phone calls and we handle each order individually. We dispatch our orders daily and accommodate customers all over the world. Our wonderful packaging is not charged for. Please email or call with any queries or requests for photos.
