Our first online sale was in 1995, being one of the first book dealers to sell used books online. Being on the ground floor of the online used book business, we have acquired a rare knowledge of the industry that helps us provide an unmatched customer service experience. In addition to our online listings, we have a brick and mortar store located in Edmond, Oklahoma at 1914 E. 2nd Street. We buy and sell at this location Monday thru Saturday, 10am-6pm. We currently add thousands of titles to our online inventory each month and sell hundreds of books each day, so inventory is always changing and the selection is always different.
