Can you give a rejected book a new home?

Book Rescue is our new initiative to prevent the waste of perfectly good books being destroyed or going to landfill by selling them at a discount.

Books returned from retailers or with errors made during the printing process are usually thrown away by the industry without ever having been read once. Our Book Rescue simply takes those books and sells them at a discount to ensure they still reach readers.

All of the below books are in perfect reading condition, they simply have slight imperfections on the cover, such as knocked edges from being returned stock, or slight crinkling on the spine from print errors.

Obsessed with his bloodlust, Alex Demeter is wagered the ultimate prize: the one thing he could never have. But after five hundred years, he knows the game is anything but fair.

Why is a Book Rescue needed?

The publishing industry is incredibly wasteful – enough books are pulped every year to fill both the British Library and The Library of Congress twice! Books that were never even read. Due to the Returns Initiative in the industry, a bookshop can order 200 copies of a book, sell 50 and send the rest back to the publisher for their money back. It’s simply cheaper for the publisher to pulp them than have them processed back into stock, especially when so many of those books are often damaged after being moved from one warehouse to another.
