Like New... I think not!


First let me say the app is wonderful. Haven’t had any problems. Ordered on Monday received on Saturday. I live in Arizona so most of facilities are not that far from me.

So I made my first purchase... I bought 8 different types of books. The thing with this is you can’t see the books or SMELL them!!!

I bought hard cover books. I also bought a variety of books so that I can see what condition each of the books were in by their standards.

I bought 2 like new books. Only one of them was like new. The other one had highlights throughout the book.

Now the one that really bothered me was the fact that they would ship a book that smells like Mold. It smells like it was stored in wet moldy basement. This was the very good condition book. Very disappointed. My other very good condition book looks like some spilled something on the front cover of the book.

Finally the good condition book was in better condition than the like new book, despite the highlights in the book.

I’m a serious book collector.
If I pick a book that’s like new. I would think that’s what I would receive. I’m scared to pay anything more than $4.99 for the books they have. I have books that’s $79 in my wish list... but I would refuse to pay that much for a book and get anything less than new. Don’t like markings in my books. Dust jacket needs to look like it was stored on a bookshelf and not a garage. Very disappointed with first purchase.

Why is this even necessary?


This app has the exact same features the website does and is designed so similarly you cannot even tell the difference. The only difference between the app and the website is that the app keeps signing me out.😡😡😡

I was hoping that I would be able to see my orders more clearly instead of having to click five different links to get to one shipment. I wanted to see all the books I've ordered on one page and maybe notifications from the app for when my order ships would be nice but it doesn't seem to do that either. I don't really see a reason why I should keep this app on my phone when the website has the same exact features and even works better.

Has its flaws but makes up for them

Pics art rules

I’ve been using ThriftBooks for about a year now, and usually the books are in good condition when I get them. I recently received a book that was covered in annotations, to the point where it was hard to read, so I called their customer service and received a full refund and was offered a new copy of the book. Their customer service is wonderful and the books are so cheap that you can hardly complain. I strongly recommend this app!
