One bag or box at a time, please!

To keep track of our thousands of trading customers, we please ask that you keep your items INSIDE one bag or box (no oversized boxes!) and that you only have one trade in at a time.

Spends like cash!

Your In-store credit spends like cash, and can be applied to 100% of your book purchase! It does not expire.


Why is it called Page 42?

Our namesake is the book Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. In it, there is a running joke that 42 is  the answer to life, the universe, and everything. (Though we still don't know what the question is) And that is exactly what we hope for you to find in our store! Page 42 should have books for every reader. 

Do you pay cash for books?

  We do pay cash for some items. To be eligible for cash purchase, a book has to have a higher value than just our run of the mill fiction and non-fiction. Some types of books we have paid for include antiques, collectables, complete series sets, and current college textbooks. We can always pay more in store credit than cash. 

Do you do pick-ups?

Generally we do not do house pickups except in the case of estates. If you want to inquire about pickups or house calls, please give us a call or send us a message on Facebook or Instagram

When is the next quarter sale?

  We host our 25 cent book sales every 4 to 6 weeks during the months without snow. How soon the next one is depends on the quantity of books we are processing at this time. We generally announce the sale on the Monday before the event. To stay updated about this and other events, you can follow us on Facebook and Instagram, or get added to our email list here.
