If you’ve got books, no matter the size, shape, quantity or quality; we’ll take them


We’ve been connecting a global community of book lovers to their next favourite read since 2000; in ways that are good for the planet, its people and its customers. 
Our book rehoming services allow us to save books from landfill, bring books to new audiences, and contribute positively to the community around us. 

In tandem with our sister business, Cambridge Rare Books, we’re working hard to offer new opportunities to the community for recycling and selling their books. With two teams of expert booksellers working together, we’ll find the perfect solution for your book collection. Whether you’re clearing a house, tidying up a school library, or simply want to raise some money for your charity or organisation, we can help. 


Recycle or Donate Your Books

If you’re looking for a hassle-free way to clear out your old books, you can simply turn up on site 7 days a week and drop your books off in our rehoming container, located at the back of our building.

Personal Vendor Accounts

If you have over 500 books in good condition (no torn or missing pages, unmarked), you may be able to become a barn bookseller. Get in touch to find out more.

Charity Partnerships & Fundraising for Schools    

Did you know that we offer vendor accounts to charities, schools and local organisations and small businesses? It’s an excellent way to raise extra money and to get all of your supporters, friends and family involved.

Businesses & Organisations

If you’re a business who has books to clear out, whether it be office books, house clearances or removals, or multiple-copies of titles from publishing runs; we’re here to help. We can offer collection or on site receipt of these books, either to be recycled or to sell through our vendor service.


Our collections team is waiting to hear from you and look forward to seeing how we can help you, and how you can help us to do our bit for the planet. No bundle of books is too big or too small. Simply give us a call or send us an email, and we’ll get to work on finding the best path for you.
