WE BUY USED BOOKS & RECORDS

BOOKWORKS, CHICAGO, IL

BOOKWORKS selectively buys used, rare and out-of-print books in over fifty subject areas. We also buy LP records and antique photographs, paper collectibles and prints.

WHAT WE BUY

We always look for out-of-print and older books but we also consider some newer titles in both hardback and paperback editions. We buy used books in Very Good to Fine condition in over fifty subject areas.

We’re also searching for records that are still in nice condition. Classic rock and older jazz and blues recordings are always in demand, but we also consider collections of other musical types.

WHAT WE DON’T BUY

We are unable to buy any damaged or marked books or LPs that have wear to the disk or are lacking their original album covers. Also, we do not purchase encyclopedias, textbooks or sets that are missing volumes.


WHAT WE PAY

Our book and record buyers evaluate each item separately to determine our selling price and we offer a percentage in cash based on that amount. We pride ourselves in offering fair prices for the items we can use based on the current market.
