Our Company

BookVolume was created by online retailer Woody’s Books, in order to fulfill an unaddressed need in the marketplace. We realized that book stores and libraries across the country and the world are buying books online to use and/or resell in their local brick and mortar establishments. Creating BookVolume allowed these organizations to purchase books more efficiently online by searching thousands of sellers across several major marketplaces all at once.

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, with a small dedicated staff, we work hard to provide you with an unparalleled product and exceptional service. Please check out Our Team to learn more about the people that work here. We believe BookVolume proves that some great things in life really are free!

BookVolume for Selling

If you have any dead stock that you haven’t been able to get rid of in your store or online, or if you’re looking to increase the amount of books you accept during buyback, BookVolume’s selling tools are the solution. Selling on BookVolume is also a 100% free service to use, just like our buying tools.

BookVolume does not buy books directly, but we’ve partnered with a number of buyback sites that want to buy your books. Upload your selling list, search it in BookVolume, and price compare across our buyback partners to see who will give you the most bang for your book.
