World of Books sells quality used books at competitive prices to millions of customers worldwide each year. They want your experience with World of Books to be enjoyable and problem free.
Established by a group of dedicated book lovers, over the past 10 years World of Books has seen inventory grow from 1,000 books to over 2 million in stock.
They appreciate the impact a good book can have and can relate to the excitement of a new page turner or the familiar joy of an old favourite. They all like the idea of saving a little extra cash too, so when they found out about how many good quality used books there are out there, they just had to let you know.
Using an advanced inventory system, World of Books matches good quality used books with those that are looking for them. From popular fiction to rare finds, they find new homes for over 9 million items every year for customers in 90 countries worldwide.
All books are checked for quality before they go on sale and would like to think that their prices mean that no book is beyond your budget.’
At World of Books they are committed to minimising their environmental impact. Each month they recycle over 4 million books, saving 22,000 tonnes of books a year from going into landfil. All of their paper waste is recycled within the UK and turned into corrugated cardboard.
World of Books strongly believe that it is a travesty to simply throw away a used book when there is nothing wrong with it. They believe in giving each book the chance of finding a new home.
