Bookends Used Bookstore opened in April 2007 and since then has become Myrtle Beach's favorite used bookstore. Owners Vicki Baty and Norma Smyka search everywhere to bring customers quality used books at reasonable prices.
Bookends has over 25,000 books in inventory. Whether your interest is in popular fiction, classic literature, or something a little lighter, like romance or westerns, you will find something to please. If you are looking for non-fiction, we've got that too! There’s a bit of everything, including history, true crime, cookbooks, autobiographies, spirituality and more.
Our selection changes daily and is constantly growing. Of course, if you need help making a decision we are always glad to offer recommendations! Stop in to talk books or just to browse awhile. Find and like us on Facebook, as well.
Trading Books for Credit
We offer a generous in-store credit policy which can be used towards the purchase of used books. We can take 1 bag or small box of "gently used" books per visit, and the books can usually be processed while you shop. If you have a large number of books (over 50), please call for an appointment. If we cannot process all your books while you shop, or if you'd rather not wait, we can advance you some credit on your purchase that day and give you a receipt for the books you have left with us. If there are items we cannot use, we will hold them for one week for you to pick up, or if you prefer, we will donate them to one of our favorite charities.
For trade in we are looking for late edition (2018 or more current) paperbacks and will take hardbacks (2020 or 2021) if they are not out in paperback yet. Classics and collectible authors are accepted according to our current needs. We do not take text books. For specific queries, call during regular business hours (843-280-2444) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
