does your trade policy work?
We give 30% of the cover price
in trade credit for paperback fiction in excellent condition
and within 6 months of publication. We give 15% of the cover
price for older paperbacks that we take to sell inside the store.
This amount of trade credit is filed in a ledger under your last
name and may be applied to the purchase of our books at their
regular discounted prices. Credit may not be used for any of
the special sale prices or for the outside budget books.
you buy books?
Yes, although we are very selective
and give less than we give in credit. Recent paperbacks (within
6 months of publication) will be purchased at 20% of the cover
price or 30% in trade credit. At times we will be low on books
in a certain category and will pay 10% of the cover price for
paperbacks in that category.
are your books priced?
All books inside the store are priced
inside the front cover. This price is usually 50% of the cover
price or lower, with the exception that no book is priced below
$1.50 in the store.
are the books on the front patio?
These are our budget books and
are always on sale: 15 for $3.00; 7 for $2.00; 4 for $1.50 or

Drew, and we're constantly receiving new titles every day!
you sell books online?
Unfortunately no, we do not
sell books online. We entertained that idea, but there are so
many books constantly coming in and out of our store, its hard
to stay on top of it all, let alone keep an up-to-date inventory
on our site. The SEARCH function to the left only searches the
newsletter - it is not a book search (we don't have an online

service during your next visit.
