A: We occasionally buy books, but more often accept them in trade for store credit towards other used books. We are most likely to purchase unusual or hard to find but popular genres or titles. Examples include metaphysical/new age and Eastern philosophy, science fiction paperbacks, teen reads, vintage or rare titles, and find bindings. We don’t usually buy books if we already have copies in the store, but can often take them in trade. Books need to be in very good condition to be considered.

A: We accept books in very good condition for credit towards other books in the store.

We have two credit categories, A level for our hard to find items, including recent releases, all science fiction and fantasy, art and craft books, metaphysical, new age and Eastern religions, and vintage books. This category also includes signed books, books with fine bindings, and a few authors that we have difficulty keeping in stock.

Our B level credit encompasses all the books that are not in category A, including fiction and non-fiction not listed above. B level credit cannot be used towards books in our A categories.

Trade credit applies to used books only, and covers up to half of the purchase price. For example, with trade credit on file, a used book that we have priced at $5.00 will use $2.50 credit, and cost $2.50 at the register.
