Our parent company, Book Depot, has been offering customers amazing deals on new books since they began selling online in 1997. Our product is purchased from many different publishers at amazing prices and we pass along these savings by selling them to our customers for deeply discounted prices. We offer three types of products:
Bargain books are excess inventory and store returns that we purchased directly from various publishers. We purchased these books for amazing prices and we pass along these savings to our customers by selling them for 50% to 90% off publisher’s list price. These books are new and in good reading condition and will, in most cases, have a small dot or line on the edge of the book to signify it is a discounted title.
In addition, since our books are excess inventory from publishers, there may be very minor wear, tear or bends to the book and this can be expected since some items may have been handled a few times before arriving to us. However, the majority of our books are in good reading condition.
In rare cases the actual cover for a book might not match the one in the display picture but we can assure these are still top quality books and the content will still be the same as described. Shop Bargain Books. Shop Bargain Books.
Scratch & Dent books are excess inventory or store returns from publishers that will have more noticeable dents, tears, or scratches and various other cosmetic issues, such as missing dust jackets. They will be structurally sound, guaranteed great for reading and typically have even deeper discounts than our Bargain Books. Scratch and Dent books are not eligible for returns as they are sold as-is and are final sale. With that said, if they are for any reason compromised structurally, we will reship the book or put a refund through for the item if we no longer have it in stock. Shop Scratch & Dent Books.
Specialty Products are books and related items that don’t fall within our regular bargain pricing model but still offer excellent value. These items are not purchased as “excess inventory” from publishers but instead represent purchases made at a higher price point. As such they will have no line or dot on the book edge, are guaranteed to be in excellent condition and are typically discounted 10% to 65% off the suggested retail price.
