Book Trading Parameters

We buy clean books in very good condition.

We will not consider any books that need to be cleaned of dust, dirt, cobwebs, bugs or animal fur.

We are not allowing drop-offs or donations. No exceptions.

Limit of 3 boxes or reusable grocery bags full of books.

You must be able to lift your own books onto our countertop.

All books that we do not keep must be taken with you.

For books that we accept, we are able to offer 25% of our resale value in trade credit or 10% in cash.

Our book buying appointments are Tuesdays-Saturdays, by appointment only.


These parameters are necessary for us to run an organized and efficient business. We appreciate your understanding in regard to our requirements for book trading and buying.



Trade Credit Policy

(updated 2020)

Trade credit given by Title Wave Books Revised, will be usable for 75% of the total amount of purchase in store. The remaining 25% will need to be paid with cash or credit/debit. Customers who currently have trade credit on our previous yellow or white vouchers will still be able to use that trade credit for 100% of their total purchase price until that trade credit is gone. Our new vouchers are gray and our newer policy applies to them.

Trade credit expires after one year of non-usage.

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 to get books into the hands of Albuquerque's kids!

We appreciate your business!
