This is one of those categories that we added because of the history of our own time in the military. It was a 'should we?' or 'shouldn't we?' situation. EVERYBODY reads books, especially on remote or isolated tours, deployment, onboard ship, or a long overseas flight, so it was decided to add this as a service and convenience to our customers. The books we offer are used and have a purely subjective rating system on the condition of the book: excellent, very good, good, fair, and poor. We label them with our best "guesstimate". WYSIWYG! Fiction and non-fiction have been categorized into specific genres and more will be added as demand dictates. We do not sell digital or pornographic books. Outlined below is OUR subjective rating of the used books we offer. It is not an exact science. All books carry a small additional shipping charge because of their weight. We regret this, but the USPS sets the postage rates.
EXCELLENT – Nothing torn, soiled, dog-eared,
yellowed. Hard to tell that it is not
new, intact excellent cover, cover not faded.
VERY GOOD – Maybe some very slight scuffs; not
soiled or torn; page spine is still white, good cover, little fading on cover.
GOOD – Some scuffs, dog-ears, yellowed page
spine, somewhat faded or slightly torn covers.
FAIR – Scuffs, faded and torn covers, yellowed pages,
but still in readable shape.
POOR – Cracked or broken (separated) spine, loose pages, yellowed
pages, maybe soiled, dog-eared pages, faded covers, missing cover; usually something only a
collector would love.
