World of Books Discount Code

A slightly different post from me today but one that I hope you will all enjoy.


A couple of weeks I was contacted by a very nice man called David who asked me if I’d be interested in some books? Silly question – I love books! Look at the name of the blog!

David had noted that I had a long list of classics on my The Classics Club page and wondered if I needed help finding some of them and invited me to peruse World of Books to see for myself the wide range of pre-loved books that they have on-line.

You can do the same here

Who World of Books Are

World of Books sells quality used books at competitive prices to millions of customers worldwide each year. We want your experience with World of Books to be enjoyable and problem free.

Established by a group of dedicated book lovers, over the past 10 years World of Books has seen inventory grow from 1,000 books to over 2 million in stock.

We appreciate the impact a good book can have and can relate to the excitement of a new page turner or the familiar joy of an old favourite. We all like the idea of saving a little extra cash too, so when we found out about how many good quality used books there are out there, we just had to let you know.

Using an advanced inventory system, World of Books matches good quality used books with those that are looking for them. From popular fiction to rare finds, we find new homes for over 9 million items every year for customers in 90 countries worldwide.

All of our books are checked for quality before they go on sale and we like to think that our prices mean that no book is beyond your budget.

What World of Books stand for

At World of Books we are committed to minimising our environmental impact. Each month we recycle over 4 million books, saving 22,000 tonnes of books a year from going into landfill. All of our paper waste is recycled within the UK and turned into corrugated cardboard.

We strongly believe that it is a travesty to simply throw away a used book when there is nothing wrong with it. We believe in giving each book the chance of finding a new home.

I had a look and easily found some of the books that I need to finish (ok well pretty much start) my challenge.

David, nice man that he is, offered to send me a selection so that I could show you all just how easy it is, and he did,

The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie by Muriel Spark
The Moving Toyshop by Edumund Crispin
The Red House by A.A. Milne
The Greengage Summer by Rumer Godden
Sunset Song by Lewis Grassic Gibbon

No excuse not to power through my list now!



Now I’m tempted to collect all those green penguins and can see myself spending hours searching through the massive inventory to find the ones I want with the right covers – David, you have sparked a whole new obsession which needs feeding!


I’m sure you’re all thinking, well lucky for you and I may just go and take a peek myself.

If so, David’s generosity knows no bounds as he is offering a 15% discount to all my blog followers so you can choose some pre-loved (or even unread) books too – all you need to do is use the code CLEOLOVES15 before 31 March 2018– so don’t dilly-dally now.

To use the discount code once you’ve filled your cart select the cart icon and you will see the screen below

Below the PayPal and Checkout buttons click on the words in blue: VIEW SHOPPING CART

This will take you to the screen where the discount code CLEOLOVES15 can be input and applied before you proceed to pay.

World of Books also have another brand called Ziffit where they source books, and other media, from those looking to sell their collections for some reason or other through the Ziffit website or app.

I do hope you all find many books to grow your TBR piles even more from World of Books, I’m sure I will be visiting very frequently.

  1. Thanks very much for this, Cleo. I always like learning about new sources of books, and I very much like that this one is committed to being environmentally responsible.


  2. I’m not sure finding out about a book shop with every book and free delivery is a good thing for someone trying to cut back on their book buying but thank you for the discount code. I suppose I will have to buy some books and use it 😉


      1. I’ve used them for buying paperbacks from them via Amazon. Underneath a previously published book, look under the listings for ‘used copies’ and they’re usually there. Have bought loads for 1p&2p plus the cost of the postage. The books are usually pristine and delivered quickly.


  3. Ooh, super, Cleo! I shall have fun searching for the books I haven’t managed to get hold of yet – thank you! I just finished The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie, btw, and loved it – push it up to the top! Looking forward to seeing your new TBR figure… 😉


    1. Haha yes I’m wondering how many thousands of books I can read before the end of March or in light of the unexpected discount I declare an extraordinary event and therefore the rules simply don’t apply 😂 thanks for the advice on The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie – duly noted…

  4. Reblogged this on Bloodthirsty Little Beasts and commented:
    I have used World of Books for a long time so immediately took advantage of this discount code the second I saw it. They’re a great company and insanely cheap for a lot* of books without discounts anyway and I’ve never had a bad order from them – 90% of the books I get look as good as new.

    With this code, I ordered 8 books that came to a total of £36.11 (£4.51 a book) – three of which were a matching Lord of the Rings trilogy which is A-MAZING in my … book? (no pun intended) Probably going to find an excuse to use the code again before it expires – Thank you, Cleo!

    *I say a lot because whilst they sell a very large range of books, it’s tough to expect a second hand/wholesaler store such as this to have all the latest releases.

    To give an idea the books I bought were:

    Holes By Louis Sachar

    The Maze Of Bones By Rick Riordan (Hardcover, £1.99)

    The Well Of Ascension By Brandon Sanderson

    Assassin’s Quest By Robin Hobb

    Spider-Gwen Vol. 0: Most Wanted? By Jason Latour

    The Lord Of The Rings: V. 1: Fellowship Of The Ring By J. R. R. Tolkien (Hardcover, £2.80)

    The Lord Of The Rings: V.2: The Two Towers By J. R. R. Tolkien (Hardcover, £2.80)

    The Lord Of The Rings: V. 3: Return Of The King By J. R. R. Tolkien (Hardcover)
