We take in books for store credit, but unfortunately we can’t take everything! Here is a detailed list of the books and authors we are currently looking for. We can do a trade for store credit, or we can do cash. For more information about our trade policy, check out the page “Books to Sell?”  Please note these lists are not updated daily! We do our best to keep them current, but we have so much stock moving in and out it is impossible to keep them 100% accurate.

If you are looking for cash only for your books, or if you have records to sell, please call ahead before stopping by to ensure we can look at your collection that day.
