We Buy Books
We buy books from our Seattle area customers. We are mostly interested in non-fiction titles, particularly scholarly and unusual titles. Some subject areas we like are art, architecture, music, science, history, erotica, gay and lesbian studies, nature, mythology, eastern religion, women's studies, anthropology, media, and pop culture.
If you have books to sell, please give us a call or email and we can schedule an appointment for you to either come by our Capitol Hill warehouse, or for us to make a house call (for larger quantities). We will evaluate your books and make a cash offer or a credit offer good towards our online stock of more than 12,000 titles.
Your books will find new homes all over the world from appreciative Pistil customers.
