"My great partner since 2012. WOB provides me quality used books that I can develop my business starting from a scratch to success at the end of this year. Very helpful co-working staff on our international shipments. Without WOB, our mission to help spread the reading skills seems would not be possible. Thank you for being our wonderful business partnership."
I got the books. I'm very happy with the quality and condition of it. Thank you so much
Just a quick note to let you know that the books finally arrived at the school yesterday afternoon. Thank you again for all of your time and assistance throughout the process and having seen most of the books contained within the pallet dispatched, thank you for not only the content, condition and amount of books you provided but also for providing so many book categories which the school requested. You will be pleased to know that the pallet of books is the talk of the town over here in Gibraltar at the moment, with the staff and the school highly recommending World of Books to all other schools. I also have a meeting with the Minister of Education regarding a World Book Day Initiative and will take that opportunity to recommend the company to him personally. Thank you again for everything.... I am sure I will be in touch again soon
