Our online catalog consists of over 1,000,000 U.S. titles. Other online sites remove the short discount books (publishers who do not give the customary discount to booksellers) from their online inventory. We do not. We figure, that if you are able to get a book from us that you are not able to get from anywhere else, that you will become our customer for life. And that is our goal.

Order two or more books that have a total of 25,000 Won or more, and your shipment is free. In some cases, we can offer you two day shipping on some books. What other online booksite in South Korea can do that?

Don't have a credit card or don't like using it online? When you shop with What the Book? you can pay in the store or go to any Korean bank and pay by bank transfer. Of course, we accept all major credit cards online as well. AND, all credit cards that are only to be used in South Korea. What other booksite in English in Korea can cffer all these options?

Why shop with another booksite that only has an office in Korea? Our office, as well as our store, is located in Itaewon. If there is ever a problem with your order, which rarely happens, we are available to help you in person and in perfect English or Korean! We are the online booksite where you can put a face to the site. Also, since we are 100% dedicated to residents of South Korea, we know what you want! What sells well in Hong Kong, might not sell well here. We know what you want, and we put it on sale for you.

You can have your books shipped to your home or your office and if you don't want them shipped there, you can come pick them up here in the store. What other online booksite in English in Korea can offer you these options?
