Used Book Buying 


We buy used books, including vintage books. We do not buy every book and we may take vacations from book buying if we have enough used books or if we are too busy to process them.  We do not buy books in the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas.


We always accept donations!  If we do not need your books we will pass them along to someone who does.


We buy children's books and adult books. 


Books we decide not to buy must be removed within one week or they will be disposed of.


Call for an appointment if bringing in more than one box.  Phone  515-961-0391.
