Here at World of Books we are very proud of the fact we are the largest online retailer through the UK and Europe with over 2.5 million customers. Are you aware that we sell items in bulk around the world?
What a year it’s been. There will be many who are happy to see the back of 2016, but we’re not here to talk doom and gloom. We’re here to talk about books. All the books.
Take a look at some of our bestselling titles of 2016 and see what’s missing from your collection.
We get a lot of feedback at World of Books. Most of it positive, some of it quizzical and a few things that we probably can’t share here.
Of course, this is hardly unexpected. We sell around 6 million books a year to customers across every continent and 99% of the time everything goes swimmingly – but there are always exceptions.
Here at World of Books, we receive a lot of feedback and messages, but this particular hand written letter caught our eye. It was from a lady called Linda, who ordered a New Orleans guide book from our website. Upon receiving her book she opened it to the first page, which revealed something she didn’t expect.
For the second consecutive year, World of Books has appeared in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100. The list, which is produced annually in association with Virgin, recognises the 100 fastest growing businesses in the UK.
