Every week. On each weekend, we will add 11 new books to our stock. The latest additions can always be found in the New Arrivals section. All the books that you can see in the offer are books we actually have and we are able to ship them to you immediately.
Do you buy books as well?
Yes of course, in case you have some English books for sale, don’t hesitate to contact us. We offer store credit or cash, depending on the number of books you wish to sell, their condition, and if they fit our stock. For more information see We buy books.
Can you get specific books for me?
As our stock consists mainly of second-hand titles, which we get from different sources, we can only choose titles from the available offer. However, we will do our best to get the books you desire – just let us know what you are looking for (specific titles, editions, authors…).
What state are the books in?
New books are marked as “new” in the condition column. These books are brand new and unread.
Our secondhand books – after clicking on the photo you can see a bigger version of it along with additional information about the book. Among these you will find “condition” with a rating from 1 to 5. Books rated 5/5 are almost as new, while books rated 4/5 are lightly used, books rated 3/5 are more heavily used (damaged spine or cover, underlined text etc.). The condition of the book is also reflected in its price.
Do you sell only English books or also books in other languages?
Our main focus is a quality selection of English books, however, we also have a small selection of titles in German in our offer.
