"These are not books, lumps of lifeless paper, but minds alive on the shelves. From each of them goes out its own voice and just as the touch of a button on our set will fill the room with music, so by taking down one of these volumes and opening it, one can call into range the voice of a man far distant in time and space, and hear him speaking to us, mind to mind, heart to heart." - Gilbert Highet

Used, out-of-print, signed and collectible books have always been an important part of the inventory at Book Revue. As a matter of fact, when we first opened in 1977, we sold only used books.

We believe our store is far more interesting because our stock is not limited to books that are currently in print. There are literally millions of books that are no longer being published and the possibility that some of these may be discovered on our shelves adds an exciting dimension to our store.

Among our used book stock many collectible books may be found. Signed, rare and valuable books make a special gift or investment, as often the value of signed and collectible books increases over time.

SIGNED AND COLLECTIBLE

At Book Revue, our author readings and signings as well as our purchases of private libraries and estates yield a steady stream of signed books.

In past years a few of the authors who have visited Book Revue and signed stock for us include former President Jimmy Carter, President, Bill Clinton, Hilary Clinton, Anne Rice, Neil Simon, Whoopie Goldberg, Tom Clancy and Yogi Berra. Click here for a complete list.

How to sell us your used / collectible books

We are always interested in purchasing book collections, entire libraries or even single volumes that meet the necessary criteria.

In order for us to buy your books, they must be in good condition, there must be some demand for that particular subject or author and it must be a title that we don't have too many copies of at the time of purchase.

You, of course, can not know how many copies we have of a book or what the demand may be for a particular book. We just want to let you know that we tend to be somewhat selective. That said, we DO buy thousands of used books each month.

Small collections can be brought to our store or we will come to you if the collection is large enough.

If we do buy your books, we will pay you by check and remove your books immediately if that is what you wish.

Book Buying Hours:

Mon: 10-5pm
Tues: 10-5pm
Thurs: 10-5pm
Fri: 10-5pm
Sat: 10-5pm

* Please call ahead on the day you plan on coming in to sell your books! (Our book buyers do go on break and we want to make sure they will be available when you bring in your books).
* We do not buy books on Wednesdays or Sundays!!

For more information, please email Bob Klein at BKbooks2@gmail.com or call us at (631) 271-1442
