Established by a group of dedicated book lovers, over the past 10 years World of Books has seen inventory grow from 1,000 books to over 2 million in stock.
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. We all like the idea of saving a little extra cash too, so when we found out about how many good quality used books there are out there, we just had to let you know.
Using an advanced inventory system, World of Books matches good quality used books with those that are looking for them. From popular fiction to rare finds, we find new homes for over 9 million items every year for customers in 90 countries worldwide.
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.
