Payment MethodsWe accept cash, checks, Visa and Mastercard.
Trade-insreReads gives store credit for books accepted as trade-ins. Maximum credit is 1/6 of the original price. Credit can be applied to as much as 50% of a purchase and is best thought of as a discount on future purchases. This is to insure the store has some sort of cash flow on every purchase. Credit may not be applied to new books, hard back fiction, special orders, food or gift items, but otherwise, there is no restriction on how credit may be used.
Books are accepted based on the condition (stains, odors, big rips, lots of highlighting or notes aren't wanted by customers) of the book and what is needed in inventory. Generally, I don't need books by authors with mass market appeal unless the book has just come out. Examples of these authors are Dan Brown, Tom Clancy, Nora Roberts, Michael Connelly, Dean Koontz, Harlan Coben etc. Also, I generally can't use cookbooks more than 6 or 7 years old, health books more than 4 or 5 years old, romance more than 2 or 3 years old, coffee table books, textbooks that are not the current edition of that textbook.
