Sell and Donate Books

We buy books based on the needs of our bookshop, this includes space and demand, at the time of purchase. While we often like to take books in exchange for store credit, we hope you understand that given the limited space available to us we cannot purchase all books that are brought to us. Which is why we work with local charities and donate such extra inventory on a regular basis.

LOOKING TO DONATE OR SELL US YOUR BOOKS….

  1. READ THE ENTIRE PAGE BEFORE MOVING TO NUMBER 2.
  2. Please email us at info@booksaroundthecorner a photo of the books you wish to trade in for credit (cash option not available at this time) with the spines able to be read.
  3. We will then email the titles we will give you credit and schedule a drop off. We will not be processing books until they sit in the shop for 1 week and then we will add the credit to your account then you can use it on your next purchase.

WE ARE CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR POPULAR FICTION AND NONFICTION (LAST FIVE YEARS), CLASSICS, SCI-FI, FANTASY, HORROR, STANDALONE MYSTERIES, BIOGRAPHY/MEMOIRS, BOARD BOOKS, EARLY CHAPTER BOOKS, AND GRAPHIC NOVELS.

A General Rule: the books we like to buy are books we can sell in the store. If you’ve frequented our shelves you should have a pretty good idea of the types of books we take.

Credit Offerings: We will offer about 20% in credit of what we can sell the book for. No cash option at this time due to COVID-19.

Condition: We are looking for new and gently used books with very little to no underlining, highlighting, or annotation. Please make sure your books are in clean and sellable condition before bringing them in.

We Do Not Take: Maps, Magazines, Ex-library books, Encyclopedias, Books with Cracked Spines, Time-Life Books, Reader’s Digest, Chicken Soup for the Soul Books, For Dummies Books, Romance or Erotica, Classroom textbooks, books that are dirty, heavily underlined, moldy or falling apart, hardcover books without dust jackets, or books that are irrelevant or outdated.
