Choose a category or genre (or multiple) and we’ll put together together a Grab Bag of randomly selected gently used books for you or a loved one for $25. Leave a note at checkout with your selection (classics, mysteries, thrillers, historical romance novels, staff's favorite books, etc.). Also specify the reader’s age range if that is relevant. We’ll work with you over the phone or by email to help narrow down selections.
We’ll do our best to send you unique items, but we cannot offer refunds or exchanges if you have already read a title we pick out for you and one you have already purchased. We also cannot guarantee specific titles or authors.
