Simply brilliant books & service.
Great way of reusing books. My books arrived promptly in great condition. I always search here first for books before buying anywhere else..
Condition is always as published and delivery is via Post Office which suits us.
Best online book store
Have used World of Books for a while now. Always manage to find specific books I'm looking for. Can totally rely on description of condition. Well set out website that is very easy to use. Excellent offers occasionally which greatly add to the value of this site. Strongly recommend.
The Eagles by Andrew Vaughan
I had been looking online for a copy of this book at a reasonable price for several months and finally found one. After one month and I still had not received it World of Books sent me a full refund. The very next day to my surprise the book arrived and it was in very good condition as advertised. I believe the delivery was probably delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and I forwarded full payment again. I would happily recommend World of Books.
I have just received the book I ordered, 'Audrey's Old Man' by Dorothy Baird - well-packaged - after a delay caused by the disruptions to postal services world-wide due to corona.
I had initially been concerned because the book had not arrived more quickly and hoped it had not been delayed in the post. An email to World of Books was answered immediately and encouraged me to be patient.
I happily recommend World of Books to others. I love the fact that I could find an old book published in 1906 through them.
My book has now arrived! (was delayed due to virus)
I got my email a couple of weeks ago to do a review, but my book ' George Formby, A Troubled Genius' by David Brett, hadn't arrived after 2wks due to the corona virus. I emailed about it and was told of the update to deliveries to 30 days. I received it today, 23rd April 2020 from dispatch of 20th March.
My book, as I mentioned in my earlier review was as said, 'in good condition.' When closed, the edges of the pages are slightly yellow, but inside the pages are all white. Top and bottom right-hand corners slightly kinked up, but this could h...ave been during delivery. Slight creases on cover but only show in reflected light. All-in-all in a very good condition, as said. I didn't get an invoice which I think you usually get a leaflet, but I have my emails about order.
Where are my books
Sent numerous emails to your company just get the usual sorry about delay due to covid 19 however it didn't delay you taking my money if I want to use any language I like you stick to facts I put my order in early March you took the money come up with every excuse and so far on t the 16 April u have not delivered u cannot even tell me where my books are
Questions & Answers
Overall very happy with the service but it worries me that you don’t post comments that don’t suit you. Will not review in future and would be obliged if you would stop pursuing me
when will the Elizabeth George book I have ordered and paid for arrive please?
In my experience with World of Books most of my purchases have arrived around the time that was specified. Occasionally an item might arrive the day after the specified time. If I have been concerned I have contacted World of Books and they have always answered my concerns promptly. Usually it has been suggested to wait a couple of more days after the specified date as often the postal service is the reason for the delay. World of Books have always asked me to let them know if the item fails to arrive as it can then be addressed.
Hi Ros, count on ten days if you live interstate in a rural location. Australia Post will keep you updated on line through their tracking system. My last order arrived in my post office box here in rural SA right on the tenth day.
