I ship books at the beginning of each month, within the first week only. Requests received after this first week will automatically received a "Delay" response. Thank you!

The standard I use to mooch books is as follows:

"Brand New" (Never read or used; in perfect, mint, undamaged condition; publisher’s remainder marks are acceptable).

"Like New" (Used but still in perfect mint condition inside and out)

"Very Good" (Appears new from the outside with minimal marking inside; books with these marks: autograph; name of previous owner; underlining on 10% of pages or less; highlighting on 10% of pages or less; institutional ID stamps and library checkout card pockets)

"Good" (Books with minimal damage; scuffed covers and missing dust jackets; Cover can't be creased, torn or have holes; minimal crease or tears to majority of the pages; no missing pages)

"Acceptable" (Books with damage; creased, torn, or holes in the cover; books with damaged spines; books with more than 10% of pages highlighted or underlined; books that have been refurbished; books that have been modified for library circulation; Mylar covers; attached dust jackets; embossed covers or numbered book spines)

"Unacceptable" – The following items will not be mooched. Please honor this in MY request to YOU. (Books without covers; books with missing pages; books with stains or water damage)
