Introducing Wob – New Name, Same Us!

introducing wob, world of books group

Wob, formerly known as World of Books

We have entered a new chapter in our story: Welcome to Wob. We’re still your favourite place for pre-loved books and the latest bestsellers, but we now have a slightly different name. Books have been and will continue to be our main passion and focus, but now we have even more to explore. Have you checked out our fantastic collections of CDs, DVDs, and video games?

By changing our name to Wob, we’re keeping true to our beginnings but changing for the future. You will see some instant differences on the website and social media accounts, our emails newsletter and updates, and of course this blog.

Our packaging is changing once we have used all our current stock – that means nothing goes to waste. So, have a look around, you will find the same great reads at Wob, as well as much, much more.

The name of our parent company, World of Books Group, remains the same. Read more about Wob and the group on our About Us page. Our Group’s CEO shares his thoughts on the change.

“Books will always be our first passion, but for many years now we have been so much more. We’ve always been called Wob by many of our customers and fans – so it made sense to adopt that as the new name for World of Books. It’s still the same great service for our customers and commitment to our purpose: to protect the planet and support charities by enabling more goods to be reused.

This is an exciting change that gives us even greater strength to drive the circular economy and grow our business further.”

Graham Bell, CEO – World of Books Group

    I love World of Books, or Wob as it’s now known. I buy books every month and have to say that Wob are the best company around for buying used books? Such a simple idea and it’s good for the planet and people’s pockets. Here’s to a bigger future 😁

    Hi, I have an order with order number #wgb-2111-14520188. Even though I selected my current address the order got saved with my old address where no one will be able to get the delivery. Could I change the address to 97 Swallowfields Sp10 5pl? Thank you, very much appreciated.

      Unfortunately we cannot change the address once the order has been confirmed, as our picking and packing process begins right away. For help with how we can solve this issue, please contact our customer service team via the website or social media
