World of Books sells quality used books at competitive prices to over 2 million customers worldwide each year.
Started by a group of dedicated book lovers, over the past 8 years World of Books has seen its inventory grow from 1000 to over 1 million books in stock.
We appreciate the impact a good book can have. We know the excitement of a new page turner, or the familiar joy of an old favourite. We all like the idea of saving a bit of cash, so when we found out how many good quality used books are out there, we couldn’t keep it to ourselves!
All of our books are checked for quality before they go on sale, but we realise that value is just as important in these challenging times. At World of Books, we are determined that even the most budget-conscious reader can find what they want at a price they can afford.
At World of Books we are committed to minimising our impact on the environmental. Each month we recycle over 2.3 million books, saving over 12,500 metric tonnes of paper a year from going straight into landfill sites. All of our waste is recycled within the UK and turned into corrugated cardboard. We believe that it is completely wrong to throw away a used book when it is in perfectly good condition.
Our mission is to give each book the chance of finding a new home
