World of Books Group (Wob), the UK’s leading online re-seller of second-hand books.

Founded in 2008 and headquartered in Goring-by-Sea, West Sussex, Wob is a re-commerce business operating within the books sector, committed to acting as a force for good. Its purpose driven actions focus on three areas – the promotion of used goods; championing literacy by helping to make books more widely accessible; and taking action to reduce carbon emissions – each aligned with the UN Sustainable Development goals of responsible consumption, quality education and climate action.

Wob’s experienced leadership team, led by CEO Graham Bell, has developed a highly scalable and sustainable platform to support future growth. It sources its books via well-established charitable partnerships – including the British Heart Foundation – and directly from consumers through the Ziffit app, and then sells them through its own website as well as via Amazon, eBay and other specialist marketplaces.
