Selling Your Books To Us

June 25th update: We have resumed book buying with an altered buying procedure.

An appointment is necessary to sell us your books. No walk-ins. You may make an appointment by calling (651)644-7605 or emailing orders@midwaybook.com. Please have an idea of subject matters and quantity of books you have so we can know if we might be interested and if it's worth your time to bring them over. Pictures especially, and sometimes lists can be helpful.

When you have an appointment, pull into the alley behind the book store, drive up to the blue door and call us and we will meet you in back. Unload your books into the back room, we will look through them and call you with our offer.

 

Please note. It is difficult to say whether we would be interested in a particular title over the phone. We buy books in many different subject areas. Of particular interest are art, illustrated, children's, science fiction, horror, military, history, philosophy, literature, occult/new age, math, and science. We also purchase silver and golden age comics, vintage pulps, and some vintage magazines.

As a general used book store our stock spans the gamut from rare collectibles to good reading copies of classics. We do not purchase everything though. Books in poor condition, general encyclopedias published within the last hundred years, reader's digest condensed books, college text books, and record albums, are a non-exhaustive list of stuff we do not buy.

 

House Calls

At our discretion we can make house calls for large collections that are of particular interest. House calls are typically only done with collections of over 200 hardcover books in subject matters of interest to us. Books do not have to be in any particular order but should be up on shelves or otherwise easy to look through not in packed up in boxes.
