Frequently asked questions

  • Why is it good to buy second hand books?

    Books have a lot of life left in them after one read and we think books should have multiple owners across their lifetime, so buying and reading second hand books is a great way for them to be continually recycled. Second hand books are great value as they're a much cheaper and more sustainable option compared to buying brand new. This means you can easily buy 3 or 4 used books for the price of a brand new one.

    Shopping used books also gives you a chance to find old versions of your favourite books or first-edition copies (if you're lucky)!

    P.S. Can you really call yourself a book lover, if you don't love the smell of a used book?
