Trade Books for Discounts at Gottwals!

Are you stockpiling old books, wondering if you should trade them at Gottwals Books? The short answer is, “Yes!” If you are willing to bring them in, we will consider them for store credit.

Tips for Trading

Many of you ask for more guidance, so here are a few generalizations for trading:

  • Condition is the #1 factor. We want our store shelves to have the best quality books! Normal wear-and-tear is expected, and we can be more forgiving of damage and wear when the author, title, or genre is particularly scarce.
  • We are a bit more selective when it comes to authors and titles that are widely available in our stores.
  • Hardback books are most desirable with dust jackets intact.
  • Most contemporary fiction is accepted. Our store associates will explain any exceptions.
  • When in doubt, please let us take a look at what you have! It’s impossible to memorize our trade-in criteria because our needs are ever-changing.

We accept trades anytime during regular business hours. For large volume trades and/or trades presented during peak hours, we may request a day or more for processing.

Toy of the Week

Pop Blocks Building Set: $24.97

These colorful building blocks for toddlers connect with knob-and-socket closures that are easy enough for little hands but provide nice resistance work for growing motor skills and finger strength. They are lightweight and easy to maneuver, so toddlers can snap them together, twist them around, and pull them apart.
