Romawi Books

Specialist suppliers of low cost Picture Books, Graphic Novels, Chapter Books, Novels and Non Fiction Books in all shapes and sizes to school libraries

May 2014

 

May! - crikey, where's the year going. So far in term 3 we've had 3 big deliveries - you'll find them on the right under "Latest Arrivals". We've also been busy 'tidying up'. You'll notice we now have a section called 'Fiction Genre' - we've looked at the bulk of the Intermediate / Teen books and tried to put them into a category - so if you're looking for Dystopian titles for example you'll find them there. I hope it's useful for you. Apologies if we mis-categorize the odd 1 or 2!

 

 Are you a librarian in a school that's never ordered from us before? Sometimes it just seems like a hassle using a new supplier. Well why don't you give us a try? What have you got to lose? We'll even send you an invoice after you've received the books that you can put through the normal school channels. We're confident you won't regret it!

 Postage -There will be a basic $2 charge for ordering your first item, plus $1 per item untill you reach a value of $150 worth of books and then postage becomes free. So in a nutshell - order 15 books at $10 each and postage is free - order 5 books at $10 each and it'll cost $7 for the postage. I hope you think that's fair. Not bad really when you consider the amount you'll be saving and the fact that we'll corier your books to you within a few days 

Just because here in New Zealand we live a million miles away from the rest of the world, doesn't mean we have to pay the earth for good childrens' reading. Our family moved to New Zealand from the UK in 2005 with 3 children then aged 3, 5 & 7. We soon noticed that buying books for the kids was going to be an expensive business. So 8 years on Romawi Books now imports great children's books by the pallet load, from the UK and USA.

This is a win - win situation. We get to choose great books for our kids to read, make a living and are still able to sell the books to you for fantastic discounts! Typically we can sell our books from $7 to $13 - now that's a bargain!

The books are all brand new - some we've bought in quantity and some just in 1's and 2's. However it's worth pointing out that we buy quite a lot of our stock from 'remainder' wholesalers - i.e. the stock is new but may have been already shipped to a shop or distribution point and then returned as not sold - either because of overordering or a recall due to reprint. This means that some of the books from the US have a black mark on the side (indicating remainder stock). We feel this is a small price to pay for otherwise fine and perfectly readable affordable books! We hope you agree.

The new website should allow you to :

  • Search by reading age: - Picture Books, Primary School, Intermediate & Teen/Young Adult
  • Search by Fiction or Non-Fiction or Graphics or Picture Books
  • Search by fiction Genre - Dystopia etc
  • Use the 'search' toolbar to look for a particular author, word, title or phrase.
  • Buy stock online - we're charging a flat rate of $2 plus $1 a book for postage but if you order $100 or more then it's free!
  •  If you live in the Manawatu, Horowhenua, Kapiti, Porirua, Hutts or Wellington areas we should be able to deliver for free if you don't mind waiting a few days! Just make a note in the comments box when you order about delivery and we will do our best.

 

Let's have a bit more of this: And a bit less of this!
