Gently used hardback books
Gently used hardback books
Looking for a certain out of print book?

A book you loved as a child and can no longer find?

A book you once borrowed from the library, but it's been removed from the catalog?

We specialize in gently used hardback library books that have been withdrawn from circulation.

These books are typically offered at an annual library sale.

Those not sold are often sent to recycling centers. We've "rescued" them for faithful readers like you!

About RescuedBooks
RescuedBooks was started  April 2001 and launched May 2001.

Janet "rescued"  hardback library books from the local recycling center after the local annual library sale was concluded.  This was the first step toward the long-term dream of eventually owning a used book store.

All the books are safely stored on shelves and are handled as carefully as possible.  Most are in very good condition (exceptions are noted in the details page).

Virtual Dustjacket - Wish you could pick up the book and read the details from the dustjacket?  I'll gladly scan it for you and send it via email - just click here to submit a request !!

Closing 5/1/2009 and Discount Code

With mixed emotions, Rescued Books will be closing due to inventory depletion after 8 very fun years.. 

Janet's goal of saving the used books from shredding has almost been met, and inventory is almost depleted.

Plus, used book sales are a very big part of our local culture for fundraising, and we'd like to support those charitable organizations while keeping the books in circulation.

Thanks for all your support over the past 8 years, and we wish you all the best.

The books will be available for purchase until 5/1/2009..

Please use voucher code CLOSING to enjoy an 80% discount on all books.
