Services and Selection

New Books

We carry a number of new books in store in addition to our used selection. If we don’t have on hand what you are looking for we can order new books in store for you, usually delivered in less than a week and we even mail them you. 

Used Books

The shop is small but the stock is carefully selected. There’s a mix of new releases and old, as well as fresh books and slightly used. We carry a large selection of current paperback best sellers in all major categories.

Sell Books

If you would like to sell your books in good condition, we will have a look at them. We are interested in hardcovers and paperbacks in exemplary condition. Check our Trade Policies for details.

Trade Books

We are also interested in trading books. Bring some – take some. We will offer up to 50% of our retail price in store credit, based on our assessment of how quickly we think your books will sell.

Mobile Store

In the future we plan to come out with our Mobile Book Store to bring a selection of our books to fairs, trade shows and events. Let us know of any venue you would like us to visit with our Book Truck.

Estate Sales

If you are offering an estate collection or a large personal library for sale, please contact us to arrange an appointment. A Companion Book Buyer will make house calls for particularly large collections.

Books come into our Lives for a Reason, a Season, or a Lifetime.

Condition of Books

We take clean, shiny books that we can put straight on the shelves. Some exceptions may be made for desirable books. We are always looking for current best sellers.

Not accepted Books

We do not accept Readers Digest condensed books, encyclopedias, magazines or books that are soiled, wet or damaged. Companion Books reserves the right to refuse any book.

Trade
Process

All book trades are done by appointment unless you wish to do just a walk-in trade of five books or less (we appreciate your patience if we are currently working with customers with a scheduled appointment). We accept up to five boxes per appointment.

Receiving Trade Credit

We offer up to 50% of our retail price in store credit, based on our assessment of how quickly we think your books will sell. Our trade credit account is tracked in store. Trade credit has no cash value and therefore cannot be converted into cash or used to purchase gift certificates. Trade credit is taken off purchases before any other special coupons or promotions are applied.

Cash
Credit

We offer up to 20% of our retail price in cash. We will generally not pay cash for common authors and titles which we can obtain on trade. Trade credit has no cash value and therefore cannot be converted into cash or used to purchase gift certificates. Trade credit is taken off purchases before any other special coupons or promotions are applied.

Spending Trade Credit

You can use your trade credit to buy previously loved books – no cash required. You may use Companion Books trade credit toward 20% of the price of any ‘New’ books (ones we’ve bought directly from the publishers). To buy collectable books with trade credit you must trade in collectable books. We track collectable credits separately from regular credits.
