About

Crappy Old Books aims to be the online version of our much endangered high street second hand book stores. Here you will find all sorts of junk that you just couldnt imagine.

Crappy Old Books also aims to provide all of these books at great rates.

The site was concieved on Monday 23rd Novemeber 2009, and is slowly growing. Hopefully over years it'll have much more to offer and will be a joy to browse through, just like our musty second hand book stores of yore.

Most of the books come from local libraries and have library stamps etc, donations, and many come from Florida in the USA where I go to regularly.

We Don't Buy Books

Please don't phone us asking if we will buy your books. We will currently collect for free though, please check below.

Free Book Clearance

As of July 2017 we are offering a free book clearance service. We can collect books around the Berkshire area, West London, and along the M4 through to Cardiff. Please call before to discuss suitability. Unable to take lots of large hard back books. anything considered, just look at what's on this site and ask yourself if that looks like the sort of place for your books? Ideally prefer any military books, crime books, anything high-brow or eclectic, thrillers, history, poetry, old pre-ISBN books and slim paperbacks. Things that fit trough very small letter boxes.
