World of Books is the UK s largest seller of used books online. We sell quality used books at competitive prices to millions of customers worldwide each year. We are a circular economy, for profit company that supports charities and protects the planet by enabling more goods to be reused. We don t believe that books should only be read once or have a single owner. By choosing to buy a great value second hand book, you re helping to continually recycle and share the love of literature in rereading and reusing it. We do our best to provide good quality books but there's no escaping the fact that it has been owned and read by someone else before you. It may well show signs of wear and tear, each one of our books is hand-checked by our team.

Item arrived in time, and as described. Thank you!

negative comment by Chris O on Aug 18, 2021

Sent softcover instead of hardcover. On top of that, the book was listed as in Very Good condition and, regardless of cover, the book they sent is in horrendous condition.

neutral comment by Michael on Jul 24, 2021

So-so experience the second time around with this seller. The description of the book failed to mention it was an ex-library discard with torn out endpiece and slight spine lean.

Item arrived in good shape.

positive comment by Michael on Jun 30, 2021

First class. My first time ordering a book from overseas, but it arrived within the estimated delivery window and in excellent condition. The description was terse (only two words: "very good") but entirely accurate...thank you!

positive comment by Marie F on Jun 28, 2021

negative comment by Richard D on Jun 28, 2021

the book was described at Very Good Quality yet arrived with a crease down the front cover and several sticky and prominent coffee cup stains - 19.00 for a 7.99 paperback in such poor condition!

Prompt delivery. Well packaged. Goods as described.

negative comment by liz on May 18, 2021

Still not arrived. Was meant for a birthday, too late now. Very disappointed.

neutral comment by Ian C on May 12, 2021

Book is described as 'Very Good'. The book is ex-library. The dust jacket is fastened to the binding with adhesive, it has library stickers attached to it and there is a rubber library stamp on the flyleaf. No mention of ex-lib. anywhere.
