Trade Policy

Can I receive cash for my books?


We do not offer cash for books. For each book we accept, you earn trade credit of 25% of the current publisher price for paperbacks, 40% our selling price for adult hardcovers. Children’s hardcover books earn trade credit of 25% of the selling price. We make our decisions on the books we take based on our current inventory and condition of the book.




Do I need to make an appointment to trade in books?


No, appointments are not needed. We accept books during all business hours.




Can I apply my trade credit towards new books or gift items?


Trade credit only goes towards half the price of used books.




Can I use my trade credit to pay for my entire purchase of used books?


Trade credit only goes towards half the price of your used books.




What about books that I’ve purchased from you and finished reading?


We always accept the books that you previously purchased from us for trade credit.




Does my trade credit ever expire?


Your trade credit is good for two years from your last transaction in the store. In other words, if you continue to shop with us, it will never expire. If there has been no activity on your account in over two years, we will donate your trade credit to the account for educators.




What if I can no longer use my store credits?


You may gift the trade credit to another account, or donate to teacher accounts.




What about the books you can’t take?


You are welcome to take home the books we can’t accept or have us donate them to charity for you.
