Build your own book box


Great selection of books, only wish there were additional options available to indicate books geared toward boys or girls. We had 4 or 5 books that were definitely for girls and my son was not interested.

Build Your Own Box Review

I purchased a $20 bundle of trade paperbacks. They were "Build Your Own" - meaning there is no specific theme among the books such as "Mysteries" or all by author. They are totally random. The books I received were all best-sellers, all copywritten between 2009 and 2015. All in perfectly acceptable condition - some wrinkles on the cover, maybe a bit dog-eared, pages slightly yellowed, etc. They smell slightly musty like a warehouse, but no bad odors - basically, they smell as you would expect an older trade paperback to smell. They smell like the books I've read all my life really. I received free shipping (it was a special), so with 10 in box for $20 and only a few bucks in tax and tip, I got a great deal! I will probably read the majority of them, there are couple that I may not read, but I will end up donating the whole lot at some point anyway. It was fun to open the box and see what I got! Most of the books I had never heard of - but that's ok! It's an adventure. I would purchase again!

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.
