Do you buy books?
We do NOT purchase books. We have a Trade & Save Policy which allows you to bring books in and receive further discounts on books in the store. By bringing books in you can receive up to a 30% discount off of new books & 30% off used books with a red tag. You can also purchase select books for as little as 50 cents! Please check out our Trading Policy for full details!

Do you take CDs/DVDs or other types of media?
We do NOT take music CDs, DVDs/Blu-Rays, old VHS/cassette tapes or Vinyl records. Rose's Bookhouse has nearly 2,000 square feet of space, nearly all of which is packed to the gills (do stores have gills?) with books, books & more books! Even though we also enjoy music & movies as much as the next person, books hold a very special place in our hearts. I do believe, even if our store was to magically double in size (where's a fairy godmother when you need her?), we would STILL be all about the books.

Do you take book donations?
We CAN take book donations, BUT only under certain conditions. In a perfect world we would take each & every book we ever came across. Unfortunately, space & time are fixed limitations and we must stay within certain guidelines. Even if you just want to get rid of your books (whether it's a large or small number) we still must follow the same guidelines as books being brought in for the Trade-in & Save Account. In short--no more than 40 paperback or 20 hardcovers/day and whatever we can't use we have to give back to you.
