What are the condition of your books?

We purchase new/unused books. Many of our books are last copy books, which simply means the publisher is either no longer printing this book, or may be changing the cover. Some of these books will have a small black mark on the bottom of the book. These books are still brand new, and the mark does not affect the cover/pages of the books. Our last copy books are deeply discounted by the publisher, which allows us to pass the savings on to your program.

Are there discounts for large quantity purchases?

Please contact us for purchases over 1000 copies per title
