We need your books!
Trade in for what?

How do I trade-in?
- Trade-in lots about the size of 2 grocery bags can be dropped during normal business hours without an appointment.
- If you have a larger lot of books, contact us and to make sure we have room and can make appropriate arrangements.
- It may take 1-2 weeks before we provide you an offer once your books are dropped off
- Once an offer is made, you can choose to accept the offer and we will provide notice of your credit via email.
- If you decline our offer we will arrange a time for pick up of your books at our store
- If we do not receive a response to your offer after 2 weeks of emailing, we will assume acceptance of your books and apply the store credit to your account.
What can I do with this credit?
- Trade-in credit is for the purchase of books only (both used and new!)
