The BiblioManiac: Helping people clear out books they no longer need and getting them into the hands of people who need them.

We can help you clear out your no-longer needed books by:

  • Paying you cash for your books
  • Saving you the hassle of sorting, packing, carrying and taking away the books (within a 50 mile radius of Chicago)
  • Providing a donation of 10% of our profits to the Children’s Reading Foundation

What We’re Looking For

  • High-quality non-fiction trade paperbacks and hardbacks
  • We specialize in, but are not limited to, books on Music, Art, Photography, Religion and Philosophy.

What We’re Not Interested In

  • Used textbooks, encyclopedias, dictionaries, or bibles
  • Book Club books, Reader’s Digest, Time-Life, National Geographic
  • Mass-market paperbacks
  • Books with highlighting and/or underlining in them
  • Books with mold, mildew, smoke or water damage

If you are looking for quality used books, we list on Amazon under the name The BiblioManiac, or you can visit our Amazon online store at:
