Store Credit For Used Books
WE DO NOT PAY CASH FOR BOOKS.
You will receive a store credit of at least 15% of the cover price when you bring in pre-read paperback books in good condition.
We accept hardcovers at a flat rate of $1.99 store credit per copy.
Store credit may be used as 50% of your purchase of pre-read titles; the other 50% can be paid with cash, check, or credit/debit card.
Store credit may not be applied towards new books or non-book items.
When you purchase one of our new books and bring that book back within 2 months, you will receive 1/2 of the book's retail (cover) price in store credit.
New Books and Special Orders
We are happy to take special orders for new copies of books that are not currently in stock, and offer a discount of at least 20% on titles obtained from publishers and wholesalers.
We keep "want lists" for pre-read titles that may be temporarily out of stock, and we will happily do out-of-print searches for you.
We offer an additional 10% discount on pre-read and new books to teachers of students from kindergarten through 12th grade, as well as to college and university staff, with proper ID. Please provide a current paystub or your Massachusetts Teacher Association card at time of purchase.
We also can order titles in bulk quantities for classroom use.
Discounts do not apply to non-book items.
