World of Books was established by a group of dedicated book lovers and specialise in selling quality used books at competitive prices to millions of customers worldwide each year. We 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.
Helping the environment is a big part of what we do at World of Books and the whole business works hard to ensure that we’re doing our bit to help protect it. That’s why we re-use and recycle over 28,000 tonnes of books and paper waste every year, keeping some 70 million books from going into landfill.
All of our books are checked for quality before they go on sale and we like to think that our prices mean that no book is beyond your budget.
We have a large team dedicated to keeping the business running effectively and efficiently which has helped us to grow and expand rapidly in the past 10 years, bringing employment and opportunities to the local community. We’ve also been lucky enough to pick up a few awards along the way, including The Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
