Trade Your Books For Store Credit

Piles of books everywhere...

A day in the life of our buyer: new books come in every day!

We are only looking at books for store credit/donations at our Glenwood location.

Monday through Friday between the hours of 10:30 – 2:30 you can bring in one small box/bag of books. No appointment needed! (one large storage bin needs an appointment!!!)

If you have 2 or more boxes/bags we do asked that you make an appointment. Our number is (410) 489-2705.

We no longer take Computer/Business books published before 2010.

Hardback Fiction (general, mystery, sci-fi, etc) we are going to be more selective:

  • Recent release, classic, or unique plot
  • No water damage
  • Must have dust jacket
  • Tight spine
  • Clean


We ask that you call us at (410) 489-2705 to make an appointment if you are interested in trading us your books.  We will ask you their subject (romance, mystery, cooking, military history, etc.) and binding (hardcover, paperback, etc.) and the approximate number of books or boxes.  We offer store credit only in exchange for books.  If you prefer cash, the closest stores that buy for cash are Second Edition in Columbia and Wonder Book in Frederick, Gaithersburg, and Hagerstown, MD.

The standard disclaimer:

We cannot take antiquated books, encyclopedias or any books that are torn, mildewed, musty or moldy. We can only look at the number of books that you tell us you are bringing in.  If you make an appointment for two boxes of books and bring 20 boxes (this has happened!!), we can only look at the two boxes for which we have allocated time and space.
