Here is our fifth list of used books for sale. We had previously written about the CERA Used Book Exchange here. Copies of List #5 and an order form have been mailed to all current CERA Members.
Used books, donated by our members, are being sold to raise money to help fund CERA programs and services. Since we are a 501(c)(3) organization, such donations may be tax deductible. Do you have used traction books that you no longer need? If so, why not donate them to the CERA Used Book Exchange? We thank our donors.
HOW TO ORDER – You can pay by check through the mail using this form, or online using PayPal or acredit/debit card. Please do not send your credit card information through the mail. As items are sold or added, we will update the online version of the list here.
As books are sold, we will cross them out on the online list,
like this. You can download and print out a copy of List #5 here.
You can also contact the CERA Office by telephone at 312-987-4391. If we are not available, leave a message and we will get back to you.
To order books online, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and CERA will e-mail you back an invoice that you can pay using PayPal or a debit/credit card.
All sales are final. Used books are sold without warranty or guarantee. No haggling or quantity discounts- the items here are priced to move. Please do not ask us to put items on “hold” for you. Books will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
Current (2014) CERA Members in the United States get FREE SHIPPING. Other Domestic buyers pay $5 Shipping and Handling per book. International shipping is available by special request. Contact us and we will work up a quote based on actual cost.
Books are graded as Excellent, Good, Fair, or Poor. Significant damage is noted, where observed. Some amount of normal wear is to be expected in books that are “of a certain age.”
When using the mail-in form, in the unlikely event of an overpayment, if a book you want is no longer available, please indicate whether you would prefer a refund, or a credit that can be applied to a future purchase. If you send your order by mail, keep a copy of the form for your records.
Please note: Illinois residents must include 9.25% sales tax with payment.
