We are always interested in buying good books. Generally we look for books of
lasting value in good condition. If a title is in print, we`ll be selling it for half the
current price. If a book is out-of-print, we try to determine the fair market price, both
for our local market and the internet. Scarce books in high demand bring high prices. More
common books, or those with low demand are worth less.
We pay you a percentage of our
selling price which varies with the salability, scarcity and desirability of the book. If
you would like to take credit toward other books, we will pay you 20% more than the cash
The condition of books is extremely important to us. We don`t buy books which have been
underlined or highlighted. Hardcover books books less than fifty years old should have
their dust jackets. And nobody likes books which are dirty or water-stained.
