Most popular novels more than a year old hold little to no value. We would be happy to look through your collection, however please keep in mind that most of these types of titles will not be purchased. 

We typically avoid large encyclopedia Sets. Some exceptions are made if they are complete, relatively current, and have market value.

A: In SOME cases we will buy Professor Editions and/or International editions, but they will not be given full value.

Q: If I need a book this semester can I buy it from you?
A: Absolutely yes, you can. We even offer same day local pickup options. Some titles sell quickly, so we cannot guarantee that we'll have your book in stock.

A: Yes. We welcome you to leave unwanted books with us to be recycled or donated to a local charity. We will take care of it for you.

Q: Do you pay more for books than the campus bookstore or local competitors? 

A: We strive to offer the best price and service. In order to insure that we are competative, we price match our competition. Since we are local we do not have the overhead and shipping costs of our competitors. For this reason we can often pay more than any other competitor.

Q: Are the books you sell cheaper than the competition?
A: We sell online so we are constantly trying to compete with the fair online market value. Most often our prices are the lowest. We also offer local pickup when available. so you can opt out of shipping costs and waiting time. Feel free to email us with reasonable offers.
