Came quickly, very impressed

published

If I'm reviewing the book, haven't had time to read it yet. If WoB then I was impressed both with the condition of the book and speed of delivery. Will definitely order from them again.

Used but Like New at Great Prices

published

Loved that I could order several books that are considered used but when they arrived they were new. The prices were half the price of elsewhere. The delivery was about 10 days so not bad. Fantastic discovery and well worth shopping with WOB first.

Ex-library with library stamp

published

This copy of the book is from a library and still has the library stamp--this was not declared, which is not acceptable.

Recommended book

The order and delivery was efficient. My friend highly recommended this book as one of her favourite childhood reads, so I ordered it for my child. Hasn't begun as yet.

Affordable & Sustainable, just like knowledge!

I have been buying from World of Books from the time they were called Thrifty Books as I loved their ethos. Sustainable chain and most thoughtful team, reduces guilt of commerce for me!

Now we are six.

published

I loved this book when I was young. I have been reading it to a six year old, who is not interested. It is too dated, for her! She seems to not relate to the style of language, yet. The book and its content are charming, classic A.A. Milne, English nursery type stories and poetry.
