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
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
