ThriftBooks was started in July 2003 in a storage unit in Kirkland, WA, with a commitment to provide quality, cheap, used books at the lowest prices anywhere. Just two months after founding the company, the first book was purchased and shipped: Charlotte's Web, by E. B. White, for $4.74.
With warehouses distributed across North America, we have brought scale and innovation to processing and selling used books, allowing us to continually grow selection and ship even faster to ThriftBooks customers.
While cutting edge pricing technology and the latest supply-chain methods allow us to serve you better, it's our people that make the difference at ThriftBooks. Each quality, used book is saved, sorted, rated, shelved and finally, shipped by hand. You can have confidence that the quality book you choose will be sent to you, unless our software tells us that a superior quality copy can be shipped to you more efficiently; then we'll give you an upgrade at no charge.
ThriftBooks has been featured for pioneering methods in online used book selling in many publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Seattle Times, Puget Sound Business Journal and The Software Development Times. As we grow, we continue to work with literacy and environmental charities to share our love of reading without impacting our landfills.
The commitment to you, to price and to innovation brings our motto to life; Read More. Spend Less.
