Different books reach us in different conditions. Here is what our different condition
Used-Good: The book has clearly been used before but there are will be minimal damage to the book meaning it has a lot of life left in it. The pages might be slightly dog eared, but the book will not be ripped or torn in any way, the cover will be in good condition and the book will not have any smells or odours from previous owners. Textbooks may have some highlighting in them from previous owners but this will be limited to a few pages, otherwise we will not grade it at this level.
Used-Like New: These books are all but new. This means they may originally have had a plastic shrink wrap on them which has since disappeared or they may have been sitting around in a bookshop for a while waiting for a buyer but other than, the condition will be mint.
Brand New: Erm…well…Exactly what it says. Brand New, directly from the publisher or printer.
When you get to the checkout stage, just whack in the coupon code into the 'coupon code' box and you will get the advertised discount.
