Bookstore Inside Photo Trade Policy
We love your gently-used books! Bring them in for trade credit towards books in our store. Normally we'll trade for 25% of the cover price for paperbacks, and hard cover books vary.
Trade credit can be used for half of your purchase.

Under Charlie's Covers cannot offer trade credit for the following:

  • Books with broken bindings, in poor condition, or containing writing in the text
  • Hardback books without dust covers
  • Hardback duplicates - if we already have a copy, we don't have space for more
  • Ex-Library books
  • Most text books
  • Readers Digest Condensed Books
  • Travel, Business, Health, and other Non-Fiction books more than 5 years old (exceptions apply...we will determine whether we will accept them)
  • Serial Romances (numbered or dated)
  • Audio Books on Cassette
Books that have Goodwill or other discount stickers on them will be credited for 25% of the sticker price, so please remove the stickers before bringing them in.
Also we will credit your account for any books you purchased from us as long as our price is still visible.
Trade credit is good for two years after the date traded.
Thank you for your business!
