Lightly Loved Book Credit Policy

 

Lightly Loved Book Credit Policy

Used books will not be accepted October 31 - February 1.

You will receive 15% of the Lightly Loved Book's value in trade credit.  The book's value is defined as the price A Likely Story
can charge for the book. Trade credit records are the responsibility of the customer.
 
For example, a customer brings in a hardback book and we price the book at $6.00. The customer's credit would be $.90 (15% of $6.00)
To use trade credit, you may use up to 50% of the price of another book. For example, if you purchase a book for $5.00, you may use up
to $2.50 in trade credit towards that book. The remaining half must be paid by cash, check or charge.
 
We accept both fiction and nonfiction in hardcover and paperback. As a general rule, we do not take magazines, encyclopedia sets,
textbooks, manuals and Reader's Digest condensed books. We do not accept any books that have highlighting, underlining,writing,
water damage, visible mold, smoke or musty smells.
 
There will probably be some books that we cannot use. This may be because of condition or simply because we already have
multiple copies of the particular title. Concerning the books that we cannot use, you have two options.
1. You can take them back. *We ask that you pick up the books we cannot use as soon as possible        
after we call, as we do not have space to store them for any length of time. If you cannot pick up the
books to be returned within one month of our initial call, we will be forced to donate them for you.
2. We can donate them. *We donate books we cannot use to several different charitable organizations.
We currently donate to Ruth's House Woman & Childrens shelter, Swansfield Bookmobile and several hospitals.
