We Buy Books

 

Book Buying Policy

If you are bringing in books to sell, PLEASE bring them in bags or boxes.

We accept trade paperbacks (the larger size, no mass market) only. We do not buy book club editions, old textbooks, Readers Digest editions, ex-library editions, technical books, or computer books.

Books must be clean and in very good condition (no missing or torn pages, no loose bindings or excessive writing). Hardbacks must have dust jackets (if issued).

We will look through your books, choose the titles we wish to purchase, and make you an offer. We offer cash (or check if over $20) or trade credit for books. Trade credit offered will be 1.5 times the cash offer. We will keep a record of your credit on file for use against future purchases. We do require an I.D. to purchase books from you.

Buyers are available Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. For other times or if you have large quantities of books to sell, we recommend calling ahead. We do not buy used books on Sundays or after 4:00 p.m. other days.

We cannot make offers or guarantee that we can purchase your books over the phone. We must see the books first. We do not do appraisals or book repairs, but can recommend several local appraisers and book binders.
