What are Bargain Books?

Bargain Books are unsold books returned to publishers from big box stories like Target, BJs, or Costco. They are marked as "reminders" with a dot or slash across the pages.

These books can then be repurchased by indie bookstores, like Tuma's Books, at huge discounts that can be passed onto their customers, like you!

Condition: There may be stickers or light scuff marks. However, Bargain Books are generally in great to like-new condition. Any minor defects do not take away from the reading experience. If a book is available on audio on, I'll cover up store stickers with a "audiobook pick" sticker. Books are also carefully dusted/ wiped/ disinfected cause something they arrive a little dusty having been sitting on shelves for a while.

Pricing: Bargain Books are offered for 40% or more off the listed price or SRP. Generally prices are as follows based on audience and book format:

  • Adult Hardcover = $17.00 (SRP=$26-$32)
  • Young Adult or Middle Grade Hardcover = $11 (SRP: $16-$20)
  • Children's Hardcover Picture Books = $12 (SRP= $18-$20)
  • Adult Paperback = $10 (SRP= $16-18)
  • YA/MG Paperback = $7 (SRP: $9-12)
  • Children's Board Books = $5 (SRP: $9-10)

Purchase Policies: Any books that are in less than great condition will be marked down even more and noted, so you can shop confidently. If you have ANY concerns about the condition of a book, please email, text, or DM me for additional photos.

Bargain Books are final sale. No returns, refunds, or exchanges.
