Buying Policy

Bound To Be Read Books will always buy back for trade credit any book you purchase at our store.  We do NOT, however, have a standing buyback program for other used books generally.


We do sometimes trade for used books in specific categories, and are more likely to trade for books in hard-to-get categories such as science fiction, African-American interest, history, some modern paperback fiction or classic literature, and a limited number of other categories.


You should always call before bringing books in for buyback to determine if we are taking books at the time.  If we agree to trade for your used books, we will issue you a trade credit which can be used for 50% of the price of books you purchase here in the future.
