Trade Policy

If you have a handful of books, you can bring them in anytime. If you have a bag or a box, please make an appointment

Trade-ins must be clean, no mildew or water damage, ripped pages or covers. Hardbacks must have their original dust jacket. We do not take: magazines, Reader’s Digest, encyclopedias, CDs, coloring books or series romance. We no longer take audiobooks. If we have too many copies of a book, we may not take it.

Sorry, but we do not buy books.

However, we do give store credit. Store credit can only be applied to used books and used audio books.
For paperbacks and audio books, we give 25% of the publisher’s price in store credit.

Example- for a $8.00 book, you’ll get $2.00 in store credit.
($8.00 X .25 = $2.00)

For hardbacks, we price the book depending on how much we think we can sell it for, then give you 25% of our price.
When you use your credit- you always pay half the price of the book.

The sale is always 50/50.

Example- if you were to buy a used book for $5.00... $2.50 would come out of your pocket and $2.50 would come out of your store credit.

We always take back the books you bought from us and give you credit, even if we have too many copies.

-Bringing in Books-

The best time to bring in books is during the week, especially in the late afternoon.
If you bring in books on Saturday or Sunday, we may not be able to get to enter them while you wait.
Please bring in only one small bag or small box at a time.
When you bring in books, please leave them in their box or bag, along with the name your account is under.
All our books are on inventory, which means we enter each book as it comes in. We also keep track of your store credit and any books you’ve placed on request.
Sometimes... we can’t take all the books you bring in, but we’ll always offer to donate what we can’t take to The Young Men's Service League. They organize the books and donate them to several local charities. Most of the children's books end up with "Fostercares serves a vital and growing need throughout GA, by providing free clothing, infant equipment and developmental toys to thousands of children in foster care and relative care." 

We know your books are important, any books you leave with us to donate, will end up in a good home. No book is ever abandoned.

If you rather take your books home than donate them, we ask for you to wait for us to finish before you leave.

Our store policy is, if you leave books to be picked up later, we'll donated them by closing that day. Sorry, but we just don’t have the room.  

You cannot use your credit on new books or gifts, only used books and used audio books. Think of it as used for used. You bring in used books, you can use your credit on used books.

Your account will expire one year from the date of your last transaction.
