Here are some commonly asked questions about Logos Books:
What is the price range of your books, I’m on a budget?
It is unlikely you’ll find the number and quality of books less expensive than Logos’ prices. Our average book price is a little over $3, with many books that cost a dollar. And we charge no sales tax, with a special State tax exemption, no other book store in the area can do that.
How large is your book inventory, I’m looking for some used books that I can’t find at other book stores.
Our retail area is 900 square feet and we are able to display about 11,000 books. We sell over 120 books every business day and our volunteers continuously restock our shelves. If you don’t find that particular book on your first visit, come back a little later. It may be there.
Do you purchase used books, I have some for sale?
Sorry, no. All our books are donated, we’re a non-profit and have no funds to make book purchases.
Can I come to the store and submit a job application? I’d enjoy working at a book store.
Logos Books is all-volunteer staffed and has no paid positions.
I would like to order a particular book. Can I do that?
Yes, but only used books. You can order new books from almost any retail book store that offers new publishings. For a used book, visit our store and state your preference to the cashier. You’ll be shown the section that may have your book already on display. If not, fill out a book request form available from the cashier. This will alert our book sorters of your interest if the book does come into our inventory.
I need a textbook for a class I’m taking. Can I get it at Logos?
Probably not. Current textbooks are usually sold new and recirculated within the campus community. The textbooks we have donated are usually dated and no longer used in academia. However, some textbooks are historical and timeless, you’re welcome to come in and take a look.
I collect rare and vintage books, do you have any for sale?
Logos has a rich supply of donated books that are rare, collectable, valuable or vintage. The first place to look is the “Vintage” section at Logos. It’s the marked bookcase on the right shortly after you enter the store.
We have an Internet Store that specializes in sales of Valuable Books. Prices start at just $10 and range upward to several hundred dollars for the really rare books. The internet store is found here: https://www.biblio.com/bookstore/logos-books-davis
