AUDIO BOOKS: Books on CD are primarily fiction.

How Books are Priced

Our books: paperbacks, audio books on CD and our limited hardcover's are 50% off the cover price.

We also encourage people to bring in older books that may be out of print and we give comparable value (to how they would be published today). Our price will be labeled inside the front cover - the price on the outside of the book is usually blacked out to avoid confusion.

Condition of Books

Books should have: No loose or lost pages, no torn or missing covers, or be water damaged. We do not accept library sale books or books which are very specific or dated (ex: Guinness Book of World Records).

Audio books on CD ONLY (NO books on tape); must have the original box it came in - which also needs to be in good condition.


There is just one restriction to note: if you wish to use Trade Credit to purchase: Science Fiction/Fantasy, Mystery, Western or Audio Books, you must bring in those types of books for credit. Only those with Trade Credit in those categories receive the extra 25% off discount. Trade Credit cannot be used to purchase new or clearance items.

How To Find a Particular Book

The books in our store are arranged by category (genre). Within each section books are shelved alphabetically by author, then title. One exception is Series Romance, which is in numerical order.

There are several other sections that have different systems. Please ask us for details, and we will be happy to assist you.
