Sell your books
Sell us your books...and let someone else enjoy them.
The Strand buys quality hardcover and paperback books in good condition that have "resale value", including scholarly and academic books. We cannot accept textbooks, journals, or magazines.
We buy DVDs, Blu-ray, CDs, and Audiobooks ONLY if they are unopened and in their original packaging.
We do not accept donations.
If you are selling large quantities of books, you may be asked to leave your books for evaluation later depending on how busy the buying counter is.
The buying counter is open Monday through Saturday 9:30am–6:00pm at our Broadway and 12th St. location only.
For further information please call (212) 473-1452 ext. 240 to speak with a buyer. Please be aware that we are unable to quote prices over the phone for your books; all books must be evaluated in store by our buyers to accurately assess their resale value.
Thank you for your interest.
