About Us

World of Books sells quality used books at competitive prices to over 2 million customers worldwide each year. We want your experience with World of Books to be enjoyable and problem free.

Started by a group of dedicated book lovers, over the past 8 years World of Books has seen the 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 just had to let you know! 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.

At World of Books we are committed to minimising our environmental impact.
Each month we recycle over 2.3 million books, saving over 12,500 metric tonnes of books a year from going straight into landfill sites. All of our paper waste is recycled within the UK and turned into corrugated cardboard. We believe that it is a travesty to simply throw away a used book when there is nothing wrong with it - we believe in giving each book the chance of finding a new home.
