R.J. Julia Used Book Buyback Days are Saturday, June 9th 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, June 10th, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
If your bookcases and shelves are getting crowded once again, R.J. Julia has the perfect solution. This weekend they'll be holding a used book buyback. It's simple to sell your books for store credit.
Here's all you need to do:
At any time from now until Sunday, June 10th you can visit the RJJ website - www.rjjulia.com - and click on the Used Book Buyback link on the homepage. Or, click here to access the buyback page directly.
Enter each book's ISBN (click here for more information) to determine which books have "buyback value," and print out the confirmation page indicating that value.
Bring in the books and your confirmation page any time between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 9th or 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Sunday, June 10th.
RJJ booksellers will inspect the quality of the books, accept books in "good condition," confirm your buyback value, and issue you a store credit for that amount (you can use the credit toward the purchase of anything in the store - including the new books you'd rather have!).
Can't go online? Don't worry, you can still bring your books in during the buyback days and RJJ booksellers evaluate them to determine whether they have buyback value.
Please note: If you bring in a large quantity of books, with or without a confirmation page, RJJ may ask you to come back later in the day or the next day to give them an opportunity to process your books. They say thanks in advance for your patience and cooperation!
Of course, in all cases, the books must be in good condition. By good they mean:
- no rips, tears, stains, or odors;
- no writing or highlighting (excepting an owner's name in the front);
- no loose pages;
- all hardcovers originally sold with a dust jacket must include the jacket; and
- books that come with accompanying media (e.g., a CD) must include the media in good working order.
Questions? Just call RJJ at 203-245-3959.
Have extra books that aren't eligible for buyback? RJJ will also be accepting donations for Read to Grow. They can take gently used kids' books for newborns through high school readers, and the books will be given to Read to Grow to distribute to families throughout Connecticut.
