Special Orders

When we special order books we charge a small search fee of 20% of the book cost (or 10% for orders above $50), plus shipping and tax (if applicable). You may pay when you pick up your order at the book shop, but the order must be prepaid if we are shipping it to you. We will provide refunds on special orders, if necessary, once we have made arrangements with the original seller and have received a refund.

Store Credit for Books

We offer store credit for books we accept from you. If you bring in more than 1 box of books, please be prepared to leave the books with us and we will call usually within 24-48 hours to let you know which books we can accept and how much store credit we can offer in exchange.


We can pick up large amounts (more than 10 boxes) of books but we do not offer as much store credit due to the extra labor.


We offer to donate books we cannot use to the Champaign Library, Books for Prisoners, Salt and Light, and other local charities. We happily accept donations.


Large Estates

We are interested in large estates of books. Contact us at [email protected] for more information.
