Finding what you're after

There are three ways of finding books:
New Releases, Categories and Search


1) Click NEW RELEASES and pick the section you're after. New Releases are normally updated on the first of each month. To narrow the view to only the GALAXY or LANGUAGE sections, click the relevant tab.

2) Click CATEGORIES. Pick the category you're after and use the filters to narrow it down, for example, In Stock. To narrow the view to only the GALAXY or LANGUAGE categories, click the relevant tab. When viewing a Language category, you can narrow the view to only books in a selected language, for example, French.

3) Click SEARCH on the homepage or the magnifying glass icon (top right) to get the quick search. For more search parameters, click More Search Options (next to the Search button in quick search).

PRO-TIP: Use two of the search fields to get a more relevant result. For example, enter a distinctive word from the TITLE and the surname of the AUTHOR to get results that are more defined.



More information on Search can be found in our Frequently Asked Questions - which are found under INFO on the main menu.

For those who need a starting point, look at our Sensational Sixes below. We've handpicked some excellent titles to help you out.

Below those you'll find interests that are popular with Abbey's customers, beyond the broad category groups found on Categories.
