- Investment year
World of Books Group has come a long way since we were founded in 2002. It all began with a bag of books, rescued by book-loving entrepreneurs from a charity shop bin destined for landfill. They rescued them on the spot, determined to give them a second life, and World of Books Group was born. Over the last two decades, we have grown from a start-up into pioneers of the circular economy, helping more people join the reuse revolution. We may have grown, but our mission has never changed. We exist to support charities, protect the planet and make a positive impact in the world by enabling more goods to be reused.
