worldofbooks

World of Books is based around three core principles: Providing great quality used books at a great price, the ethical disposal of waste and contributing to charity. Started by a group of dedicated book lovers, 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 currently save over 12,500 metric tonnes of books each year from going straight into landfill sites, and all of our paper waste is recycled within the UK. Each year we contribute to several major charities within the UK, both directly and in terms of savings on waste disposal. We are very proud of the charities we work with, how our efforts help improve the lives of millions.

neutral comment by Paul H on Mar 14, 2014

I bought a used book from 'worldofbooks' which I was glad to be able to get. The description 'excellent condition' was a little optimistic -'good' or 'acceptable' would have been more accurate, but overall I am satisfied with their service and the price.

positive comment by Eric on Mar 14, 2014

Exactly as described and delivered quickly in good packaging.

positive comment by David W on Mar 14, 2014

I was very pleased with the condition of the item bearing in mind that it was used, not expensively bound and of some age. Many thanks!

negative comment by Jo V on Mar 11, 2014

this is no good for me, they offer me a refund without trying to deliver the book to my adress, they shipped it a month ago but nobody gave me notice if there was a problem with something, so i lose some money but more important i don't get my book

negative comment by jill d on Mar 11, 2014

This item has still not been received.

neutral comment by Pauline T on Mar 10, 2014

This book was in good condition but I wouldn't say 'very'. As a sticker book it was no good as the gift I had bought it for as most of the stickers were already used. Disappointing and should have been mentioned in description I feel.

positive comment by Remo V on Mar 9, 2014

Recommended Seller..Great price, value for money, thanks..

positive comment by Alexander S on Mar 8, 2014

Very fairly sent (totally free of charge) a replacement book for the original one that was damaged by water in the post; hence the positive rating for packaging.

positive comment by David J on Mar 8, 2014

Excellent condition, reasonable delivery speed. Good value.

positive comment by David J on Mar 8, 2014

The packaging was stuck to the cover of the book as it hadnt been put in the packaging correctly; fortunately some patient steaming rescued the situation
