Payment Methods Accepted

We accept checks, money orders, and online credit card and debit card payments through the PayPal service.

If you are paying by check or money order, please email to us at to have us hold your books for you. Once we receive your payment by United States Postal Service delivery we will send the books out the next day. Our mailing address is: Alden's Books, 2819 N. Clybourn Avenue, Chicago, IL 60618. USA.

If you are paying by credit card you do not need a PayPal account. Merely select the particular credit card you will be using and it will be charged for your purchase.


Our policy on refunds is very simple: refund of purchase amount within a month of your receiving your books. We cannot refund your shipping and handling costs. Of course, the returned items must be in saleable condition. Rest assured when you buy books from us you must be completely satisfied, or a refund will be promptly made. Rest assured also that profits from our book sales will continue to help troubled teenagers.

We Buy Books

We buy books from clients at our physical store at 2819 N. Clybourn Avenue, Chicago, IL 60618. Appointments are needed so our knowledgeable buyers are at the store when book collections are brought in for valuation. Please call us at 312-242-3012 or email us at to make an appointment with us for buying your books or book collection. We reserve weekends for this service.

For books we purchase we issue store credits for future purchases. Store credits need to be matched dollar for dollar on future purchases. For example, if we buy your books and give you $100 worth of store credits, you may use the $100 store credits plus $100 in cash or credit/debit card purchases to buy $200 worth of our books. Store credits are valid one year from issue. We generally accept all books offered for sale to us.

Yes, We Accept Donations

Since we are registered with the state of Illinois as a non-profit corporation, we gladly accept books for donations. We will send our drivers to pick up your books at your convenience. Please call us at 312-242-3012 or email us at to schedule a pick up date for your books.

All profits from book sales are donated to charitable causes that help our troubled teenagers.
