We sort and grade our books into two main categories of used books, Premium Used and BEATER Used.
PREMIUM Used - Books are clean and may contain a previous owners name or inscription on the inside. Occasionally books will contain small or inconsequential page creases or bends, small 'nicks' or inconsequential tears on pages or small bar-coded inventory stickers, otherwise these tend to look very close to 'new' even if the books are older.
BEATER Used - Ex-library books and books with cosmetic wear to cover. We make sure all BEATERS have all the pages and are still readable. These typically sell for 30% less than our Premium Used boxes.
