    What we’re looking for

    Do you have books, DVDs or CDs you no longer need or want? We might be interested in purchasing them. This is a great option for those who are moving, clearing out the contents of an estate, closing a store, or just books or media that you no longer want.

    What we pay

    We typically pay about $1-$2 per book for your average paperback or hardcover. If you have newer college textbooks, we will pay top dollar but they must be recent. No one wants the 2nd edition of a textbook that is on its 11th revision! There are rare exceptions of course and subject matter is also a consideration, so we suggest bringing all books with you for us to evaluate.

    How It Works

    If you have a few hundred books or more, we may be able to come to you. Simply call or email us and we can work out the arrangements. However if you only have a few books to get rid of, we may first ask you for a picture of the books to make sure it is worth your time and effort to bring them to us. Otherwise, call us and we will have you meet us at our location in New Haven. We will go through your books and pay you for the ones that we want.

    If you have 6 or more boxes of books, we can come to you.

    Just contact us via our form or call (860) 252-5252 to schedule a pickup.

    Free Pickup

    If you have 6 or more boxes of books, you can schedule a free pickup. This is only available for the ‘Donation’ option. If you would like to sell your books, please contact us via the form to the left or by calling us at (860) 252-5252 for an immediate response.

    Depending on the type and quantity of books you have, we may also be willing to travel to you to buy your books. Generally, non-fiction titles are more interesting than fiction titles for our store. Mass market paperback fiction titles we are unable to take, as well as encyclopedias, Time / Life series, Reader’s Digest books, National Geographic books, American Heritage, International versions of textbooks, advance reader’s copies, or book club editions.
