  1. What a wonderful site. I have ordered many books from here and all have been in perfect condition. I love the free shipping as well. I highly recommend them without hesitation.

  2. Complete scum. I ordered a book that never arrived. I also wasn't aware that Green Earth, where I ordered from, was part of this large chain. The very way in which they structure their business is dishonest -- they try to make each of their individual businesses look like a small, independent bookstore when in reality they're anything but.

  3. Thrift books and their "associates" do not know how to accurately describe their books. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND BUYING ANYTHING FROM THEM!Here is a list of the bookstores associated with this company. Green Earth Books, the Atlanta Book Company, Motor City Books, Blue Cloud Books, Yankee Clipper Books, Silver Arch Books, Books Squared, Free State Books, and Sierra Nevada Books.I received an book described as "as new" which was dirty, worn and water damaged. I received a book listed as "very good" with heavy highlighting and underlining on the inside. I also just received a book which probably was in quite nice condition but their packaging which is nothing but a thin piece of plastic allowed the books corners to become very bumped an damaged in the mail. Their books are usually covered with stickers and not at all in the condition described. I would avoid these so called "booksellers" at all costs.

  1. Ordered through their website to a local used book seller. Payed the $3 for expedited shipping, which says 3-8 day delivery and the dealer is in a city about 50 miles from me, so figured we would be in the 3 - 4 day window. I ordered Sun. night. Book left reseller late Tue. then instead of just Parcel post which would have been 2 or 3 days. They sent it DHL with post office delivery, so Tue DHL took it from Mich. to Georgia. Saturday it arrived back in Mich. at my post office and was delivered. US Parcel post handed to the post man on Monday would have been to me wed or Thur at the latest. Book is fine, Library bound though not listed that way. When I emailed them about the shipping within 5 min replied with a link to their amazon marketplace site which states merchants can take up to 2 days to ship. Of course I replied telling them I bought from their site and not Amazon, Their site shipping page no where mentions this 2 day delay or I would not have ordered. Funny they never ...

  2. I love their wish list feature.The website is easy to use and their filters are effective. They inform you about the conditions of the book. I have ordered more than 10 times and never got a book which is different than the description.
