Introducing Wob - New Name, Same Us!

We've changed our name, well shortened it actually, to Wob.

It's a shorter name, but still the same great choice of used books and media. Still the same commitment to our people, planet and purpose. Still the same great service.

By changing our name to Wob, we’re keeping true to our beginnings but changing for the future. You will see some instant differences on the website and social media accounts, our email newsletters and updates, and of course this blog.

Head to our blog to find out more.


Why we love being a B Corp

We know, we say it a lot. But what does it really mean, and why do we wear this status with so much pride? Every certified B Corp uses its profits and growth to propel positive change and impact for their employees, communities and the environment. That’s the bottom line. Here’s a few of the key reasons why we love being a B Corp...

7 Reasons to Buy Used Books

As a used bookseller, we really do find that buying used books is the way to go. Our seven reasons below are a great starting point for getting to know World of Books and realising how great a used book can be.

The Journey of a Book

At World of Books, we were founded on an ethos to do good, help charities, and protect the planet; it’s what we’re all about. Because of this, the journey of a book can be a wild one! We get our books from a number of sources. Last year, we generated £3 million in value for our charity partners, who provide us with many of our books. We use book banks and our customers can even trade-in their used books using our Ziffit service. This is the circular economy in action.


Wob, the Wonderful World of Books and more!

If you’re looking for great value second hand books, then World of Books is the place for you.

As you may already know, we aren’t like other online book stores. For starters, we don’t believe that books should only be read once, or have a single owner. Literature should endure and be continually recycled, which is why we help millions of used books find new homes every year.

World of Books also buys directly from charities, taking the titles they don’t want or haven’t got space for. So as well as preventing the destruction of perfectly good books, our customers are helping to support good causes too.

Cheap Books, Fantastic Choice

Browse through hundreds of thousands of titles today. Whether you’re a fan of crime fiction or celebrity autobiographies, classic literature or modern best sellers, we have it all. Better still, our books are available at the cheapest prices and come with free delivery in the UK too.

So booklovers, academics and casual readers, rejoice! There’s something for everyone at World of Books, and it won’t cost the earth.
