The New Normal at Title Wave Books


If you are wanting to trade in books, we are making appointments between 11am and 2pm, Tuesday through Saturday. There is a link in the upper right corner of this page, titled "Book Some Time With Us." Click the link to be taken to our calendar and set up a time that is convenient for you. we cannot take trade-ins without an appointment. This helps us control how many books come into the shop and allows us time to clean and process everything we receive.

  • We are considering clean books in very good condition.

  • We will not consider any books that need to first be cleaned (dust, dirt, cobwebs, bugs, animal fur).

  • Limit of 3 containers per appointment (no bigger than bankers boxes or reusable grocery bags).

  • We will not take books in trash bags or massive plastic bins. You must be able to lift your own books onto our countertop.

  • We are not allowing drop-offs or donations, NO EXCEPTIONS.

  • All books that we do not keep must be taken with you. We cannot accept donations or dispose of books on behalf of customers.

  • We give fair trade credit or cash for all books that we keep.

These parameters are necessary for us to run an organized and efficient business while keeping our staff and customers safe and our store disinfected and clean. We appreciate your understanding in regard to our requirements for book trading and buying at this time.

If you are wanting to come shop, we are currently operating at 25% capacity, which means we can have no more than 8 humans in our shop at any given time. So, you may have to wait a bit to come in, but it won't be long. 

We very much appreciate your business!

After 25 years, Title Wave Books will be updating our Trade Policies to make more sense in our modern economy and business environment.

Beginning January 1, 2020, Title Wave Books will be changing our Trade Policies in the following ways:

1. Any Trade Credit given by Title Wave Books, revised, will be usable for up to 75% of the total amount of purchase in store. The remaining 25% will need to be paid with cash or credit/debit.
Those who currently have trade credit on a yellow or white voucher will still be able to use that trade credit for up to 100% of their total purchase price until that trade credit is gone. As of January 1st, we will be issuing gray vouchers that can be used according to the new policy.

2. Title Wave Books, revised, will  be offering a cash option for book buys. Our current trade policy allows for trade credit at 25% of our resale value of the books we take in trade. Customers will now be able to opt for cash at a rate of 10% of our resale value for the books we take in trade, if they so choose.

3. Title Wave Books, revised, will now have book buying hours from 11am until 2pm, Tuesday through Saturday, by appointment ONLY. This change will allow us to be sure that we always have extra staff for  smoother and quicker transactions.

4. Title Wave Books, revised, is now offering the option of donating your trade credit to one of our local children's or educational charities. Customers will be able to donate a portion, or all, of their trade credit to one of several charities, that we will rotate throughout the year, to get books into the hands of Albuquerque kids!

We are excited with these changes, knowing that they will pave the way for new opportunities to help our community and our wonderfully supportive customers! Thank you for shopping with us for the past 25 years!
