Book Exchange Program
Trade your gently used books for credit towards the purchase of other used books.
What We Accept
- fiction & non-fiction
- hardcovers & paperbacks
- most books in very good condition
We are especially looking for:
- books about Florida
- Large Print
- sci-fi and fantasy
- "new" books (from the last six weeks)
- books printed before the year 1850
- complete matched sets
- items on our wishlist
We will probably reject:
- Reader's Digest condensed books
- magazines (even National Geographics)
- book club editions
- old computer books
- serial romance
We will definitely reject books with:
- smoke odor
- water damage
- excessive writing
- missing or torn pages
If you would like, you may donate rejected books to our "Clearance" rack outside.
What are my books worth?
We do not provide appraisals. Trade values are determined on a case-by-case basis. We will assess your books when you bring them in (time permitting), and base the trade value on a number of factors including the condition of each book, how many copies we already have and whether that title is on our wishlist. When we're done, we'll issue a trade credit receipt for your bookstore account.
Trade Credit Policy
Trade credit may be used only to purchase used books which are currently in stock. It can NOT be used for rare books, Florida books, special orders, DVDs, audiobooks, toys, games or New Arrivals. Unused credit will expire after three years.
