How to Sell Us Your Books Over the Counter

Stacks of books we bought from a happy customer.

Buying hours Tuesday - Saturday 10 - 3. 

We buy used books in all subjects over the counter for cash or store credit. Credit can be used for nearly everything in the store (there are a handful of exceptions) including new books. Store credit never expires. 

You are welcome to bring in up to 3 bags or boxes at a time without an appointment. If you have something particularly valuable or collectible please call ahead for an appointment. We will look at the books while you wait.

Here are some guidelines: 

We are picky about condition. Books in gently used condition are welcome for consideration. In most cases we prefer paperback over hardcover. 

To help you sort before you bring in your books, below is a list of what we don’t buy:

  • Books with highlighting or underlining.
  • Ex-library books.
  • Text books.
  • Time-Life books.
  • Reader’s Digest books.
  • Books with cracked spines, missing pages, tire marks, etc.
  • Long neglected books that have been stored in garages, barns or other unheated units.

We will process your books while you wait (we are generally very quick!). We will not hold your books overnight.
