We buy used books at fair prices.
We are on a pause from book-buying at the moment as we are a little over-stocked. Please check back in a few weeks.

It has been brought to our attention that someone purporting to represent us has been offering to buy people's used books in Canada. They were contacted first through the Toronto University Student Book Exchange website and then WhatsApp.
The person then offers to pay by cheque and have the books collected by FedEx.
If you have received such an offer please know it is NOT us.
We also know of at least one other bookshop in Berlin misrepresented in the same way.
We don't request that people email us at spurious gmail accounts, we don't pay for used books by cheque and we're highly unlikely to want to FedEx books from Canada (no offence, Canada, you're lovely, you're just very far away).
We would advise anyone contacted in such a way to treat the communication as extremely suspicious and if possible to report the account.
We are very grateful to the individual who reported this to us and who provided the below screenshots.
