Ryan O'Horne & You

                                       “The love of learning,

                                                           the sequestered nooks,

                                                                            And all the sweet serenity of books”

                                        -Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

We hope that our online book shop echoes the sentiments of that wonderful quote because, like Longfellow, and most probably like you, we hold books and our fellow book lovers in very high regard.

As a small, family run business we are, above all else, fastidious about customer service. After many years of being, not only an online retailer, but avid online consumers too, we appreciate the needs and concerns of our customers and fellow shoppers. We want you to feel at home whilst browsing our virtual shelves and we strive to make your online experience as relaxed and hassle-free as possible. With that in mind we offer a comprehensive pre & post purchase customer care service, so that you can browse with ease & purchase with confidence. In addition to complete & accurate representation of our goods and high quality images of each and every item we want our customers to feel free to email, or call us, with any questions & to request more photographs or information wherever they see fit. If and when you decide to make a purchase with us we will endeavour to keep you abreast of your chosen item’s progress including payment & dispatch information; this is all part of our prompt, friendly and personal service.

We enjoy a close relationship with our customers, after-all we share your love of books and antiques, so please feel free to contact us should you feel the need. We are ready to respond promptly to your requests and we will offer personal assistance to assure your satisfaction. Likewise, we are always happy to receive suggestions for improvement of the site at enquiries@ryanohornebooks.com
