    Pretty good variety

    Very little damage to the books considering they were "beaters". Some folded pages and a little coloring in some of the board books but nothing that made the books unusable.

    GREAT! Beater Illustrated paperback Books

    Right price for good books. Even though they are called "beater" books they are in decent condition. I needed to find lots of books for my classroom for my students to read/look at. Perfect for what I needed. I ordered 200 books and there weren't any duplicates.

    Not too bad for "beater" books

    I used a BOGO deal to purchase a total of 40 kids illustrated beater books for my son. I figured that even if half of them were trashed that it would still be a bargain. I went through each book and was pleasantly surprised at how good the condition of the books was despite being labeled "beater" books. They were clearly used; some were previously library books and some had markings in them as was indicated in the product description, but they were all in much better condition than I expected. I'd consider them more so "worn in" than "beat up". I wouldn't hesitate to purchase more "beater" books in the future.

    Most books are in acceptable shape, but some have been colored on or otherwise damaged. I feel I got my money's worth but probably would not order the beaters again.

    Orders are backed by our Legendary Replacement Guarantee.

    A BEATER book is a book that is noticeably used. (it looks a little beat up)

    At The Book Bundler, we sell used books, but we sort them and grade them so our book bundles are in excellent condition. 

    All of the books that are not in good enough shape for our regular bundles are graded as BEATERS and we sell these for huge discounts.  Typically around $1 a book or less.

    BEATER books are still great books, popular titles etc., but they offer big cost savings if you don't mind books that are a little worse for wear.

    All BEATERs are still readable, will not be missing pages and will either be ex-library or have noticeable wear to cover.

    We get asked a lot, 'where do you get your books from?'

    We have worked out exclusive partnerships with other booksellers & paper recyclers in the U.S.A.

    Most people do not realize that all other booksellers destroy far more books then they can sell by selling them to recyclers or pulpers.  (we won't name names 😉)

    We are the last chance stop for these books, through our partnerships, we sift and sort through these books and pull out any and all of the books in good condition(you'd be surprised what people throw away).  

    They might be used books, but we sort for quality and look for books that are in great shape despite being previously loved. 

    When you buy from The Book Bundler, you are not only recycling, you are reducing waste, going green and saving beloved books from certain destruction.  

    That's how we are able to charge so little. 

    Saving money on books never felt so right.
