Selling Your Books 

As a rule, we purchase paperback books for 10 to 15 per cent of the cover price. Hardcover books must be priced individually. What we may need in stock at a particular time varies considerably, but there are certain categories of books that we have a tendency to buy all the time.  They include:


  • The very latest bestsellers
  • Literature and Classics ( Hemingway, Steinbeck, Tolstoy, etc.)
  • True war stories ( primarily, but not exclusively, paperback)
  • Most westerns
  • Archie Digest books
  • Graphic novels
Also, at any given time, there are always particular authors that are in demand. So please call or drop in. Often we may already have enough of some particular books, but we will very gladly purchase any you have that we require.
