Used Books to Browse and Buy

Auntie's is pleased to offer used books as well as new. We receive used books from customers daily (see below for tips on this program) and each section in the store contains some popular used titles, so plan to spend a little time browsing. We also have a few bargain tables where we sell books for next to nothing, which is lucky for you, since you reap the benefits of hours of entertainment for a small portion of the original price.


To check on the availability of a used book, please call us at 509-838-0206. Our used inventory is not presently available on-line. We are sorry for any inconvenience and appreciate your support!


Whether you want to trade in a few of your older titles, check for that special out-of-print book you're trying to find, or just want to browse our shelves for bargains, you'll enjoy our used book services. Can't find it? Ask for an out-of-print search. Yes - we even do the searching for you!




Used Book Desk 

If you are bringing books down to the store to trade in we request that you bring ONLY 2 bags or boxes at a time.  Our knowledgeable used book buyers will look at your books and take any that they think we can sell.  They will generally give you store credit in the amount of 20% of the original price for paperbacks and the percentage of credit for hardcovers will vary. 


Appraisal Services

Our used book buyers will also appraise rare or collectible books for $3.00 per title. Please call and ask for Scott before you come down to the store, to ensure that he is available.


Text Books

Auntie's Bookstore is a third-party buyer for textbooks. We offer in-store credit or cash for gently used textbooks based on the software provided by our purchaser. As textbook editions change often, we may not be able to take everything you bring in to the store. In order to trade-in text books, you MUST have a current student ID or proof of purchase. No exceptions will be made. Textbook purchases over $100 may need to be issued a check due to cash on-hand. If you believe you will be offered more than $100, please call to ensure our bookkeeper is available @ 509-838-0206 WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO REFUSE YOUR TEXTBOOKS FOR ANY REASON. 



Please call if you have any questions about the used book process or any other life and death matters relating to books.
