Excellent content throughout and a title to match

Much loved Christian author writes with his customary insight and maturity in this devotional book on the Psalms. It is structured to give coverage of all 150 Psalms over a year with a reflection for each day. A deeply satisfying and helpful title for all lovers of the Bible.

I ordered three books and I am quite satisfied with my purchase. They came in the same shipment and were in very good condition for second hand books. I use vintage craft books and am very happy to find a local online store.

Secondhand book, not the best.

published

The book, for learning Italian, arrived safely but was an old version, a bit smelly and had pencil marks in it. For the cost of $16.49
I should have paid a few dollars more for a clean current one, which I might need to do anyway.

Great price! Expedient delivery!

published

I searched the internet for a copy of a long ‘out of print’ book for my son and found 2 copies at World of Books! I had seen a copy elsewhere for a very overpriced $84, so was happy to find these 2 at a very reasonable price of $14. My son lives in Western Australia and even within Australia mail and packages can take longer than normal (up to 3weeks) to get there but this book arrived within 2weeks of purchase so I was both surprised and pleased!

No coustomer service.

About half of the time books are never as good as the quality stated. Photos of more expensive editions always advertised and what you get is a cheap edition usually damaged. There is no customer service or satisfaction they do not respond to emails and don't provide a phone number. Dosent matter how many times you email if you ask for a refund or cancel an order even if it is 1 minute after ordering, they will not respond. Rare books are cheaper on ebay and you are protected and you get what is advertised from private sellers. Buy enough books and you will experience this.

Good Book Store

published

I could not find this book for the reasonable price anywhere until I found it on World of Books. They delivered the book so quickly. However, I was disappointed in the packaging the book arrived in. It was a flimsy thin plastic envelope and the corners of the book were damaged due to the type of envelope it was packed in.

I’ve just received what must be at least my 15th book from World of Books; a faithful customer with as passion for books, but on a limited budget. Great service, I’ve never had any issues, and will continue to support a company that recycles these precious pieces of beauty.

I am unable to offer any valid reason as to why this has occurred, however, I would suggest that the problem has two possible answers. Firstly, and most likely, is a delay in delivery; caused either by the courier or mail service. I live in a rural area and I know from first hand experience how inefficient the delivery services can be. The second possibility is that World of Books source their material from their warehouses that are not always located in the country in which the order is made, This is especially true of rare and older books, and can lead to a delay in putting an order together.The company does inform customers that this may occur.I realise that this is not much help to Adrian; but it will hopefully suggest a reason.

Well no it dosent help does that mean I won’t be seeing the book or does it mean you will send another copy of the book ordered
