Book Buying Policy

The Book House is known for the breadth and depth of our stock and knowledge. We have been buying, selling and appraising books in the University area for over 35 years. It is our mission to serve the University and greater Twin Cities' community as a resource for established and future classics in all fields, as well as the rare, the out-of-print and the unique.

We are a full service bookseller, and look forward to helping you your book collection needs!

We also buy vinyl records




Buying Hours

The Book House in Dinkytown generally has a buyer on duty during store hours. However, it is still highly recommended that sellers call the store in advance, especially if they wish to sell books after 5pm in the evening, or on Sundays.

What we buy and what we pay for used books

The book business has changed a great deal over the last two decades, but the Book House still buys good books of all kinds and ages. Our special scholarly interests include philosophy, mathematics, and theology; social science and history; science and technology; Latin and Greek classics, foreign language; folklore, mythology, science fiction; and always good literature.

We offer both cash and store credit in exchange for books, with an average offer of 50% more for store credit. Our bids are made on a book-by-book basis, and are based on the expected retail value derived from the current and historic market values, in-print prices, condition, and our current stock levels. 

We specialize in buying whole collections. Contact us for details. 

What we do not buy

With so many books in the world, and our own stock continually changing, it is hard to say exactly what we'll be interested in at any one time... with a few exceptions. Those are:

  • Books in poor condition
  • Outdated textbooks
  • Encyclopedia sets (unless before 1920)
  • Magazines
  • Romance novels

Appraisals / Additional Services

Book House owner, Kristen Eide-Tollefson, has provided appraisal services for insurance, donation, estates and other purposes to the community for over 40 years. Call for rates and appointments.

Kristen also provides evaluations for estates and large collections. If you are offering books for sale, it is important to have separated what you want to keep from what is available. House calls may be available for large or specialized collections. 

Please contact Kristen by phone or e-mail at:
