Injured Books

With new shipments of books, some arrive slightly injured. This may be folded pages, scuffed dust jackets or imperfect corners. In most cases, simply removing the dust jacket will remove the flaws. See below for what different books look without a dust jacket.

While these books may not be perfect, they still deserve loving homes. The animals within are still pristine and ready to make their way into your heart. We would never ship out anything we wouldn’t give to our own sweet grandmothers. If you would like more information on what an injured book looks like, feel free to call our office at 402-474-1006 or email us at [email protected].
