play no questoin at all (in my experience of course).

not tesco. don't know about others


I'll second Play.com - their delivery is always quick

Waterstones for me

WHSmith are really fast too-usually two days later

WHsmith and the book people are very quick in my experience.
I ordered a book set from The Book people on Wednesday evening and they arrived this afternoon well packaged.

Thank you ordered from play...

I've found WHSmith mega-quick for my last 2 orders (ordered in the afternoon - delivered the following morning!)

Play.com usually consistent at 3 day-ish including some of the playtrade.

Waterstones in my experience use carrier pigeon (even when they say 'in stock') but I might just have been unlucky with my last 5 orders from them (6-10days).

- Sorry. Just noticed when my site updated that you've just ordered. Good reading!
