How do I know if a book is used or new on your website?
We have a limited selection of new titles, and they will always have a price point ending in a "9" ($19.99, $15.49, etc.). We also try to mark them as new titles in their product descriptions. Our used books' prices end in "0" or "5" ($5.00, $3.75) and are generally less than our new titles. Our value books have prices ending in .97 -- these are never-owned books that may be marked with a slash or dot at the top or bottom of the book's spine.
Do you sell audiobooks?
Do you sell books on consignment?

Do you take book donations/can I drop books off at your store?
We have limited space and do not accept walk-in donations for more than 10 books per customer per week. Please review our wish list here. (Please don't leave books outside the store.

What happened to your bench?
The bench outside our store was worn and damaged, and we decided to remove it. At some point in the future we hope to replace it with a sturdier option.
