Books: Mill House Books - no longer trading. BUT RISES FROM THE ASHES!

Just went to millhousebooks.co.uk only to see this message:

Sadly Mill House Books is no longer trading

For further details please contact Steven from the official receivers office in Nottingham on [removed number]
Very sad news - I've bought quite a few books there over the years and always found their service excellent, not to mention picking up quite a few bargains in their sales.

Absolutely gutted. I was going to order from them with my next pay cheque.

Very sad news, they had so many bargains and I was a loyal customer. So many of my books are from them.

Shame

Apologies, didn't read properly and presumed he was someone to do with the company itself.

I read about that, I think the official receivers are PWC. I know they've been called in to "do the do" with a record/cd company that has also gone bang. could be mistaken it was on Times on line.

Such a shame that, their Motor Racing directories were a series that should have continued, would have been valuable resource material.

A lot of specialist book retailers have gone the same way over the last couple of years, including Sportspages in Charing Cross Road.

It's all a result of the abolition of the Net Book Agreement about a decade ago.

Internet book sales wouldn't have had much effect if the Net Book Agreement was in place though, as they wouldn't have been able to discount them - they would cost the same as in the high street.

Even if the NBA was still in force, the online companies would just ship books in from abroad, as happens with DVDs already.
