General Questions

Where do you get your products from?

We source our products from publishers, authors and suppliers all over the world. Our main criteria is that it should reflect South Asian or diverse culture, and of course, it should pass our quality test! Most of our books are in English.

What if I don’t like the products I got?

Just return them (yay!). However, only within two weeks of receiving them (boo!). Email us at, and let us know the reason for the return. We would need you to send the product back ASAP and in good condition, and we’ll give you credit for the amount you paid once we receive the product.

How do I choose the books? 

Choose books by subject, format, language or country or look up our recommendations page

If you would like personal recommendations, please email us at with the subject line 'Personal Recommendations'. 

How do you determine your pricing - would I get better prices at other large online retailers?

Since we're a small company, we keep our costs low and pass on maximum savings to you! We also do our best to match prices offered by large online retailers. If you happen to see a discrepancy between our prices and those of large online retailers, please do bring it to our attention.

We carefully curate the products on our site to ensure they are of high-quality, and also offer personal recommendations relevant to you.  We hope you will support our small and growing business.

Why do some of the blog posts link to Amazon?
Kitaabworld is transitioning to an educational platform and we are exploring a hybrid model that combines our book store with an Amazon associate model. If you have further questions, please email us at
