We accept all genres! We do ask that the books be free from any damage, writing, or water damage!

We do not accept magazines, textbooks, cassettes tapes, VHS tapes.

HOW MANY BOOKS CAN I BRING IN?

If you are dropping off without an appointment, we limit to two bags/boxes. If you make an appointment you may bring in larger amounts but must notify us at the time of the appointment.

DO I NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?

We are recommending appointments so you can have your books processed at the time of drop off and you can shop at that time. If you drop off books without an appointment, we cannot guarantee that the books will be processed at the time of drop off.

To make an appointment go to https://square.site/.../the-book-haus-new-braunfels-tx or you can text the owner at 210-833-8167 to make an appointment as well.

DO YOU PAY CASH FOR BOOKS?

NO. We only offer store credit.

HOW DOES YOUR STORE CREDIT WORK?

We create an account for you in our system to keep track of your credits. Once the books are processed you will be given the option to accept or decline the offer we are extending. If accepted, you will be able to use the credit on anything used books in the store. The credit does not apply to new books, sidelines, or accessories.

I DON'T WANT STORE CREDIT. WILL YOU JUST TAKE MY BOOKS?

Yes.
