Do you have books or CDs you no longer need or want? We donate books to local shelters and youth groups as well as local churches. This is a great option for those who are moving, clearing out the contents of an estate.

What we’re looking for

Do you have books, CDs or DVDs you no longer need or want? We would like you to donate them and might be interested in purchasing them. This is a great option for those who are moving, clearing out of an estate, closing a store, or just have an abundance of excess piling up and taking up space in your home.

What we pay

We mainly strive for donations as our main goal is to keep books and other media out of the landfills. We typically may pay up to $1 per book for your average “non-fiction” paperback or hardcover, which are basically books that are specific topic such as: Sports, History, Religion, Education, Business, Military, Animals, Investment, Computer Science, Repair, Cooking and the list goes on and on… We do not pay for fiction or children’s books, but you may donate them. If you have “newer” college textbooks, we will pay top dollar but they must be recent edition. There are rare exceptions of course and subject matter is also a consideration, so we suggest bringing all books with you for us to evaluate.

How It Works

If you have a few hundred books or more, we may be able to come directly to you. Simply email or text us to work out the arrangements. However if you only have a few books, we may first ask you for a picture of the books to make sure it is worth your time and effort to bring them to us. Otherwise text or email us to set up an appointment to meet at our home office or nearby location in Baltimore, Maryland. We will go through and evaluate the books and pay you for the ones we would be willing to purchase. Please let us know in our book form if you would like to donate.

If you have six large boxes of books or more, we can come to you.


Just contact us via our form or text @ (443)961-4713 to schedule a pickup.

Free Pickup

If you have six large boxes or more, you can schedule a free pickup. This is only available for the “Donation” option. If you would like to sell your books, please contact us via the form to the left or by texting us @ (443)961-4713 for an immediate response.

Depending on the type and quantity of books you have, we may also be willing to travel to you for the purchase of your books. Generally, “non-fiction” titles are more sought after than fiction titles. We are unable to buy mass market paperback fiction, as well as encyclopedias, Time/Life series, Reader’s Digest books, National Geographic books, American Heritage, International versions of textbooks, advanced reader’s copies, or book club editions.
