Always Courteous & Professional

Selling your books is about you feeling like you made the right decisions.  In addition to how much you get for your books, how you are treated matters.

When people come to me with books, private libraries, and collections they are never pressured and always treated with respect.

My reputation in this business is earned every single day and there is not a single book in the world I would trade for it.

If you have questions about books, I am happy to answer them.  If the books you have are not of interest to me, I will try to help you find interest in them.
