                BOOK STOP INC.  
Trade Policies
Book Stop accepts paperback books for trade for in-store credit only. We will accept up to 20 books per family per day. We do not pay cash for books. Bring your unwanted paperback books to the front counter when you enter the store. You will receive in-store credit of  25% of the publisher's price for each book we accept in trade. This credit may then be used to purchase used books at our store. Credit slips do not expire. Book Stop staff reserves the right to decline any book for trade at our discretion. With the exception of children's books and cookbooks, we do not accept hardcover books.
Purchase Policies
Used Books
   All used books at Book Stop may be purchased for 50% of the publisher's price, this includes audio books. If you have an in-store credit this may be used for up to 1/2 of your total purchase. For the remainder of your purchase we accept cash, check, VISA, or Mastercard. Minimum price for any book is $2.00, with the exception of clearance books which are just 75 cents each.
