The Book Trader

The Book Trader has been in business for 38 years. We spent 28 years in Rahway, 9.5 years in Colonia, and we are continuing now in Clark, NJ.

Trade your paperbacks and save up to 60%! Read. Trade. Save.

Trading Policy

We give store credit for any paperbacks that we take. If we are overstocked, we decline books. We do take some hardcovers, provided that they are presently on the New York Times best seller list. Once books are available in paperback, we no longer accept them. 80% of your purchase can be used in credit, and 20% is in cash or check. We do not accept credit or debit cards.
