How we grade our books

 Exclusive: Book or ebook, art, art card sold exclusively through our networked stores, not available online at other retailers.


New release, new book, books that are new or old releases but have never been read. 


A book that is new, books we've purchased new and sell used, returned, books looks as if it were new.


A book that has been read but is still in good condition. May have some cover damage (scuffs, scrapes, stickers, missing dust jackets, minimal wear).  Pages, for the most part, are not damaged, there may be minimal creasing, no tearing, pencil or highlighting of text, no writing inside, and no missing pages.


A book with obvious wear. May have some damage to the cover but integrity still intact. The binding may be slightly damaged but integrity is still intact. Possible writing in margins, possible underlining and highlighting of text, but no missing pages or anything that would compromise the legibility or understanding of the text.
