SELLING YOUR BOOKS

WE ARE CURRENTLY BUYING BOOKS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT, PLEASE EMAIL US A PHOTO OF A REPRESENTATIVE SAMPLE OF THE BOOKS YOU WISH TO SELL. THE PHOTOS BELOW ARE GOOD EXAMPLES OF WHAT YOUR PHOTO SHOULD LOOK LIKE; WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE THE TITLES ON THE SPINES OF YOUR BOOKS. 

Pilsen Community Books is happy to offer a fair price for books in VERY GOOD condition. If you have books sitting unread on your shelves, we would love to give them a new life– either on our retail shelves or on the shelves of a deserving school. We need your help to support the literature and literacy community in Chicago!

We do not buy these genres:

  • Pop mystery (Grisham, Patterson, etc)
  • Children's books or Young Adult books older than 2014
  • Romance

We are very picky about book condition. We only buy books that are in VERY GOOD condition – no tears, no missing covers, no water-damage, no smoking. Here is a list of books we DO NOT buy:

        • NO books with highlighting, notes, or underlining. 

        • NO encyclopedias, law books, text books, or teaching materials. 

        • NO magazines of any type
