Willkommen, Bienvenue, Welcome.

Your destination for used books and book lots of all sorts. Build your library swiftly and with style!

We are an online bookstore, selling on eBay and Amazon, with headquarters in Denver, Colorado. Initially, we started out buying and selling used textbooks (see our store on Amazon.com), and have since branched out into selling curated book lots, as well as rare and collectible books, on eBay. The books we list on eBay primarily come from both estates and private individuals, providing us with a diverse and always interesting selection. Our collection ranges from psychology and philosophy books to poetry and cook books. There are books to pique a multitude of interests in our collection.

Read more about us and what we do. If you have any questions, we’re always happy to help! Our goal is to find good homes for all our books, and we will do our best to accommodate you. Make sure to check out our blog, and connect with us on facebook, pinterest and twitter @TomTheBookGuy. We’d love to hear from you.

Happy reading!

~ Tom and the Book Guys.

To the less initiated, I’d like to introduce a small selection of mostly fictional books […]

  • DSCN0054 Strangest Book of the Week #20 – Collecting Antique Marbles - People will collect anything, oftentimes regardless of value. They can be insular hobbies, or serious academic/historical studies relating the collectible item to the culture at large. Currency is one of the big ones, of course – numismatics (coin collecting), and philately (stamp collecting). Also collected are vintage postcards, etc etc, but I did not know […]

I have today one of the darkest moments in the 20th Century, the day when Hitler ascended to dictatorial power.
