Trade Policy

The Book House accepts books, audio books, comics, and vinyl records as trade ins toward the in-store purchase of used books and other items. The books do not have to come from our store to be considered for trade in.

Trade Rate

Books published in 2019 receive the full publisher’s price in credit.

Books published in 2018 receive 50% of the publisher’s price in trade credit.

All other books receive $3.50 for hardbacks, and 25% of the cover price for paperback books.

What We Take

Mass Market Paperback & Trade Paperback

Hard Covers - if in demand, with their original dust jacket.

Books must be in good/great condition with no rips, no pages missing, no stains, no water damage, and little to no marking.

We love all books, but due to demand and space limitations we do not take out of date technical books, older textbooks or encyclopedias. We refuse the right to refuse any book for any reason.


Your Credit

Your credit lives under your name in our system and as long as The Book House exists, so does your credit! You do not have to keep up with any slips-simply give us your name at checkout.
