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.

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.
