How it Works

In order to continue to provide beautiful books to new homes on a platform that streamlines the process and still continues to give you all a good deal there will now be two options for buying books here at In the Wild Books

1.  Books in sets of "like" with shipping included in the total cost. 
2.  Select individual books with the cost of the books included in the price for ease of shopping and calculations. 

Please ask any and all questions about a book before purchasing. 

Every book is personally inspected by me before reselling it. Any clear imperfections, (i.e. marks, ex library, smell, etc.) will be listed in the description of the book itself. I smell and inspect each book for any thing that is off or suspicious. If I suspect mildew or mold I will not sell it.That being said, I am human & how one person may rate the condition of a book may vary from another. Find my rating system Here**

Vintage books have their pros and cons.

Vintage books are charming & have many good qualities, but they also come with their own set of quirks. Smell, dust, condition expectations, & possible content issues. Please do your due diligence on any title you purchase as I cannot be held responsible for the normal things that come with owning vintage books. 

Returns, Refunds, & Cancellations are generally not accepted. 

Please keep this in mind when purchasing. However, there are few exceptions to the rule. Please contact me for more information. 


All books ship Media Mail. 

Since most books will have shipping included in the price all books are automatically assumed to ship media mail. However, if you wish to upgrade shipping for faster receipt of your purchase you can request it at the time of purchase. Please be aware this will come with an up-charge equal to the difference which will be an additional payment before I ship after I package and weigh your purchase.  You may also purchase any additional insurance at that time as well. 

I use recycled material to wrap and ship my books.

To save on shipping material and to keep the cost for you down I recycle boxes & packing materials to reuse to ship my books. This will save you money! I aim to ship all my books with utmost care and forethought to how shipping companies treat packages & possible weather related incidents. (Wrapped individually in plastic to avoid any water damage, etc). 

Processing time may Vary. 

If you need your purchase to ship within a certain time frame please contact me & I will definitely try to expedite my processing. Generally speaking, I have a 1 week (7 business days) processing time after the receipt of payment in full. 

I do not ship internationally. 

Please take this into account when browsing. I only ship within the United States.
