It was love at first book.

The best place for books is also the best surplus partner.

You have books, we have readers.

From the very first surplus we handled in 2003, we knew we were in love. Because libraries and thrift stores had extra books that needed a home, and we had readers who needed books. We've been building partnerships ever since. See why our partners love us, below.

Book lover, Earth hugger.

We give more books a second life than anyone else - and the planet a chance. Our high sales volume means more books go from your shelves to new readers everywhere instead of landfills.

Profit sharing plus.

Thanks to terms that give back and higher traffic, we sell more while you make more.

Easy as a rom-com.

You pack. We pick up, sell, and send your money. How adorable is that?

Here's how it works.

Read our reviews.

I have had great working relationships with the entire ThriftBooks team including account managers, logistics, accounting & everyone in between. We trust ThriftBooks 100% and feel that we have generally had very closely aligned goals. It has been a pleasure to be a part of such a massive recycling operation that truly has benefited people around the globe and helped save our planet from a lot of excess waste. I have had the pleasure to see a number of your warehouses/processing facilities over the years and I have always been impressed at TB's growth and ability to stay the leader in the industry for so many years. I am proud to be a partner to TB and have been since the beginning. Broker- Washington
