BookCloseOuts is one of North America's largest sellers of Bargain Books. Bargain Books are new, unread books that the publisher sells-off in volume to reduce excess inventory. Sometimes the publisher printed too many copies, in other cases bookstores purchased too many copies and have returned them to the publisher for credit. The books therefore have been handled a few times but are still in excellent condition.
In either case, the publisher may place a mark on the edge of the book to identify it as a Bargain Book. This ensures the book will never get returned to the publisher for credit. In most cases the mark is a small line or dot, however sometimes it is large. Product with excessive marking is not sold through our web site.
Since the publisher marks each book by hand and often not in the same location, we are unable to provide information on specific markings on each title.
Our entire inventory is listed on our web site. The inventory quantities are shown in real-time. Each time an order is completed, our inventory is accordingly reduced. This assures you of viewing accurate information of our stock and results in high order fulfillment rates.
