Once a book has served its owner well, it may be time for that book to find a new home with someone who will read it, love it, and perhaps pass it along to another reader to enjoy. There are no "forever" homes at the Book Shelter, just next steps in each book's lifetime.
The Book Shelter was established in 2019 in Lake Wales, Florida. Now located in Dundee, FL, the Book Shelter is a used book store filled with gently-loved books looking for their next home.
The Book Shelter is stocked with thousands of quality used books, at amazing prices. The inventory is carefully curated to make sure that if a book makes it to our shelves, it's a book that customers will want to buy. We're not the largest of used-book stores, but the quality of our inventory is top-shelf.
At the Book Shelter, pricing is simple so that you can focus on the books, not the prices. There are no stickers or pencilled-in prices to hunt for at the Book Shelter. Our pricing is as follows:
It's that simple, so browse with ease at the Book Shelter!
The Book Shelter is happy to offer store credit for books that you'd like to exchange at the shop. If you bring in books for trade, we'll evaluate them and determine which books we can accept at the time, depending on expected sales and on how many copies of a particular book we might already have on-hand.
For books that we accept for trade, we will provide you with store credit equal to 50% of what we'd sell the book for at the shop. For example, if you're trading in a hardcover book that we'd sell for $4.00, we'll offer $2.00 in store credit for the trade.
Yes! The Book Shelter is happy to offer a 10% discount for purchases of $10 or more for teachers with a school ID or recent school pay stub. This discount does not apply to purchases made with store credit.
