How it works: Bring your books to the front counter on the ground floor where
staff will assist you. Although our employees are not permitted to leave the
store, you are welcome to borrow our dolly to bring in large amounts from your
vehicle. We do ask that you stay in the store while we look through your books.
Allow yourself at least 15-20 minutes to browse the store while the book buyer
assesses your books.
Books we are interested in: Condition is our primary concern. We do accept books of all
subjects, genres and ages, provided they are in good condition. Creasing,
highlighting and underlining are not deal breakers, but they will affect the
amount we offer you.
What we will not buy: Books in bad condition. This includes: loose pages, cracked spines,
funky odours, excessive marking, and rips and tears.
X Readers Digest condensed books

What you get for your books: We buy books we can resell. We generally deal in store credit but we
do sometimes offer cash for large amounts of desirable books or extremely
valuable books. Any cash offers made are at the discretion of the book
buyer. Any offer we do make (cash or credit) will fluctuate based on the
desirability and quality of books, their condition, and our own inventory
parking is available in front of our store. There is also a city parkade one
block away on View Street.
The parkade has pedestrian access to Fort
Street, and if you ask at the front counter we can
provide you with a first hour free parking pass for the parkade.
House Calls: If you have more than 1000 books, you may be eligible for a
house call. To arrange a house call please call the store (250) 361-4447 and
ask to speak to a book buyer.
