A ThriftBooks Global Brand

ThriftBooks, a ThriftBooks Global brand, is located near the Green River in Auburn, WA, 25 miles south of Seattle. Auburn is the original ThriftBooks warehouse. While cutting edge ThriftBooks pricing technology and the latest supply-chain methods allow us to serve you better, it's the hard-working, dedicated, team in Auburn that differentiates ThriftBooks. Each quality, used book is saved, sorted, rated, shelved and finally, shipped by hand from Washington. You can have confidence that the quality book you choose will be sent to you, unless our software tells us that a superior quality copy can be shipped to you more efficiently; then we'll give you an upgrade at no charge. That s the power of shopping with a ThriftBooks company.

Honest seller.

Honest to their words

positive comment by Vicki W on Jun 16, 2017

The book arrived today in pristine condition -- to me, it looks brand new! Thanks for using plastic wrappers rather than shrink-wrapped plastic or crimped-edge cardboard, both of which are the very dickens to open without damaging the contents.

negative comment by Andrew C on May 27, 2017

Front cover torn and badly creased; pages stained. This is not a copy in "Good" condition.

positive comment by Ernest on May 23, 2017

Book in excellent condition. Received when promised. Thank you.

positive comment by Peter C on May 20, 2017

fast delivery, quality book, excellent service.

positive comment by BillT on May 18, 2017

Described as "Fine," but I'd call it "Very Good," at best, because all three edges of the text block are browned, and the dj is slightly beat up. But OK; the price was right. Thank you again, Thriftbooks.

positive comment by Jangus on May 16, 2017

If one wants a book more quickly than most of the sellers provide, choose Thriftbooks. They seem a lot more efficient than many.

negative comment by KB BOOKS P on May 12, 2017

Seller never mentioned in their comments this book had pages ripped out. I emailed the seller multiple times about this issue, but never heard anything back.
