Special Discounts on “Hurt” Books

What's a "hurt book"?
We often receive books returned from stores and distributors that have been slightly scuffed, or with dings or sun-faded covers. Other than cosmetic damage, these are perfectly good books, clean and unmarked inside. (And in many cases these are in "like-new" condition.) We can offer you most of our titles in the condition described below at a 50% discount. Available 1st-come-1st-served — the best condition books are shipped first. If available, a new dust jacket will also be provided!

How to order:
Please create a separate order for hurt books. Just place a regular order for your titles and then use code "HURT50%" as a coupon code at checkout. The price will be discounted 50%! (Don't use this code for a combined order of new and hurt books, as only hurt books will be shipped.) If you are also placing an order for new books, please note that in the comments lines and we'll try to combine orders into a single shipment, if possible, and adjust your shipping charge. Alternately, feel free to email, call, fax, or mail your order for bargain books.

Feel free to contact us at dtsbooks@comcast.net to inquire about condition for specific books. Be sure to indicate "hurt" book when ordering.

Did you know that sales of used books normally do not result in royalties for authors? Except when you order here! You'll be pleased to know that, because we published these titles, we include sales of our hurt books in royalty accounting. This purchase supports the creative work of authors and publisher, unlike sales of used and remaindered books elsewhere.

Use coupon code "taka3"when you buy these 3 books together and get $12 OFF!

EXC (excellent) — new • VG (very good) — minimum dings or scuffs • G (good) some wear, or noticable dings or scuffs, but inside pages unmarked and very clean • OK — dings/scuffs/marks, but inside pages mostly clean • P (poor) — not offered unless book is out of print, otherwise unavailable.
