Needless to say a lot has happened this past month!
During last month we’ve raised about $700 for Go Rescue Pet Adoption Center! So on behalf of the Book Exchange at both locations, thank you all for being awesome and helping out a great local cause! We also had our charity sale in our Norfolk location and we were able to raise $887 for Mended Little Hearts of Coastal Virginia. This is an awesome organization that is based right in our neighborhood and they support children with heart conditions! We certainly couldn’t have done it with out you.
Do not fret if you missed last months charity sales we’ll being having two more during the month of October! The one located at our Virginia Beach store will be on the 21st and the 22nd during our regular hours of operation. Psst… the hours are Mon-Sat 9am-9pm and Sun 12-9pm. The charity for that weekend will benefit The Hitching Post Educational Center. They are an organization that provides tutoring, special education advocacy, IEP reviews, in-home support if needed, social skill outings and job coaching for those who have learning differences or other special needs. The Norfolk store will be having their charity sale for The Hitching Post Education as well on the following weekend, the 28th and 29th. (Mon-Sat 9am-7pm)
We also host tons and tons of local author signings. In the past month we have had 8 different events for local authors. We have all types of genre authors, anywhere from poetry to science fiction. We had Nikolas Larum back in and signing his awesome new book!

Our most popular thing to do is trade! When you bring in your used books,movies, CDs, or vinyl we will look at them based on:
-the condition of the books (they don’t have to be perfect)
-next we’ll check on their popularity ranking based on amazons best seller list
-after that we will compare them to what we already have in the store
After we have gone through those steps and what ever is left we will take in and give you 25% of the retail value in store credit!
Don’t worry though we’ll certainly be busy through all of this month as well!
