Trade-In Program


The Trade-In Program will be suspended starting Thanksgiving week through the end of the year. We will not be taking any used books for trade credit during that time.

How Does it Work?

Bring in your books during our trade-in hours Wednesday-Thursday 10am-6pm (other days/times by appointment ONLY) and we will evaluate them and offer you in-store credit for your books. Please no more than 2 bags at a time please. You are welcome to browse the shop and grab a drink while you are waiting. Appointments are appreciated and will be taken first 860-529-5500.

You can used 1/2 of your trade in credit towards the purchase of other used books in store, the other 1/2 should be paid in cash or credit card. You will always pay something, but you will also save as long as you have trade credit. Trade credit does not expire.

Example: You purchase a used book for $10. $5 trade credit will be used and the rest will need to paid in cash or cc.

Trade credit can be applied to USED books only, cannot be applied to NEW or SALE books, and it is never redeemable for cash.
