I'm pruning my library and have about 150 hardbacks and quality paperbacks that I'm interested in selling, mostly academic books (not textbooks) on literature and history. I'd rather not have to schlep them into the city to sell them at the Strand or somewhere similar; are there any used bookstores in Westchester that would be likely to take them?

I second bruised apple, thats a great bookstore for used books and older music (and novelties like old comic books etc).

There's also another store on the other side of that block (I can't remember the street name at the moment) called Retrovato consignments. They also have a good store full of antiques and used items, and its run by some very nice and down to earth people.

Just noticed today that Retrovato is closed, no longer there...too bad.

Retrovato didn't close - it just moved to a new location on South Street last year -- as far as I know, it's still open.

Yeah Retrovato moved around the corner, they're still open! I make the trek up there every now and then to support them, great people.
