What kind of books are we looking for? We want good, clean copies, of course. But our priorities will change from time to time. Here are a few things we're NOT interested in:

  • Book Club editions
  • Encyclopedias
  • Family Bibles
  • Outdated textbooks
  • Magazines
  • Computer books
  • Time/Life series
  • Reader's Digest condensed books
  • Condition is important. We don't buy books with highlighting or writing in them.
