1. Bring your books to the Book Cottage. We'll sign you up. During this time, feel free to shop.

2. We'll sort through your books — checking their condition, our stock levels, the sale history of the titles, etc. For books we can use you will receive 25% of the cover price in credit, which is redeemable for anything in the store.

3. Your credit will be waiting for you at the front desk. You can shop the same day, or the next time you are in the store. Your credit never expires!

4. Pick up your books. If you want to keep any books that we did not accept, pick them up at the front desk on your way out. If you don't want your books, and would rather donate them, just leave them at the counter and we'll make sure to give them to a local charity. You're all set!

The Book Cottage prices all books at 50% of the original cover price. Your trade value is 25% of the original cover price.  When you check out, you'll be able to apply your credit with the addition of a 15% trade fee added to your total tab.
