A great gift for my Everton mad fiancé
A great gift for my Everton mad fiancé. He loved looking down memory lane via the newspaper cuttings and remembering being there. He also loved the personalisation it made it an even more special gift. Well worth the money and not overly expensive.

Really quick delivery and a beautiful book as for 80th present not knowing what to buy this is so usual and brilliant gold writing so pleased with it !!

The book was bought as a Birthday Present with the scheduled delivery period covering the date although one day delay would have been acceptable. It actually took 8 days to arrive, 4 days later than expected.
The tracking only said it was despatched by Royal Mail 24 and gave no further information.
It was not specifically the responsibility of In The Book, however the use of Royal Mail is a negative.
