Sell Books

WE ARE NOT BUYING OR TAKING DONATIONS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

 

Sell Us Your Used Books

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.

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.

A book buyer will look at a maximum of one to two bags/boxes at a time. Weekdays are usually better than weekends to sell us your books. We ask that you either wait while we go through your books, or come back within the hour. We do not buy books during the last hour of the day; we also do not buy books in the middle of an event or on extremely busy days or during book clubs so please check out calendar of events.

Please take a moment and read through how we evaluate books before you bring yours in.

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.

Cash and Credit Offerings: We will offer about 20% in cash or 30% in credit of what we can sell the book for.

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heavily underlined, moldy or falling apart, hardcover books without dust jackets, or books that are irrelevant or outdated.

We Will Always Take Donations

We will take a look at everything else though, and make you an offer based on condition and our need at the time.
