2.  $1.50 if publisher’s retail price is $2.50 or less
        (Example - Retail price $1.95 - our price $1.50)


3.  Items with “Red Dots“ are the price marked on the red dot

New books are discounted 15% for cash.   Autographed books are not discounted.

Our Trade-In Policy
In fairness to all we ask that you bring in no more than 25 books per visit. Although we would like to accept all books in trade, we are limited to the quantity and quality of books that you, our customers, are purchasing. Of course books and audio CD's purchased at B & L Books are always welcome back unless their quality is diminished. The exception to this policy is Series Romance.  Credit on Series Romance is limited to pub date less than two years.  Final Sale books normally cannot be returned, however, sometimes we do accept them.  Credit is then based on the Final Sale price.

You can earn up to 20% of the publisher’s retail price for the books you trade in. When we accept your trades, we will give you a credit receipt for the total amount of the credit you earned.

Credit may be used for:

1.  1/2 Our price of "trades"
        (Example: Our price $3.00 = $1.50 credit & $1.50 cash)


2.  25% of  Publisher's retail price of new books
        (Example: Publisher price $7.99=$2.00 credit & $5.99 cash)


3.  1/2 the "Red Dot" price
        (Example: Red Dot price $2.00=$1.00 credit & $1.00 cash)

Credit may not be used for:

  1. Hardcover Books

  2. Collectibles

  3. Sidewalk Books (books for sale on our sidewalk cart or sidewalk sales)
