How the credit works

Store credit applies toward books we have at our brick-and-mortar store. You can use it toward 50% off our price on used books and 20% off our price on new books.

It’s important to note that regardless of how much credit you have, you will still always owe something out-of-pocket when getting books.

Credit does not work toward non-book items (t-shirts, etc), subscriptions, or books purchased through Also please be aware that we can’t place special orders right now, unless you are a teacher purchasing books for your class; we are limited to the books we have already in the store.

How to trade in

Until we reopen on June 1st, 2021, we are taking books only by appointment. You can check the calendar for an open appointment here, but as of this writing they are all full. New appointments will only appear if someone cancels.

Going forward, please note one change to our previous book trade-in policies: we will no longer be able to return books we can’t sell; we will donate them (to either local schools, Discover Books, or a variety of charities).

Operating during the pandemic showed us that we need to streamline our processes for our own sanity. We have a small space, and tracking returns introduced an extra level of complexity into our book processing. We will credit you for every book we intend to sell. By trading with us you acknowledge that you understand.
