Book Sale! Hardcover and Paperback Contemporary Fiction! (And some older titles, too!)

If you like to read contemporary fiction and/or romance, do we have a deal for you!

We have a couple of thousand or more of the latest in contemporary fiction – as well as lots of older romance – in hardcover, trade paperback and mass market paperback.

The pictures here show only the mass market paperbacks… they’re mostly in large banana boxes you’ll want to dig through.  The trade paperback sized fiction titles are also in boxes.
The hardcovers are mostly all shelved… just not sorted very well yet so we’re waiting before posting pictures… which will be coming soon!

These titles are part of a large lot of 5,000 books we just got in and have been added to our Big Wonderful Book Sale at Papa’s Thrift Shop (part of Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps) that’s going on now through the end of May!

Condition:  Nearly all of the hardcovers and trade paperbacks are in like-new condition.

Price:  During this sale (and only for the books at Papa’s Thrift Shop, 5 Park Street in Lewiston) pricing is as follows:

Hardcovers are $1.75 each, or five for $7.00 (that’s buy 4, get one free) and ten for $12.25 (that’s buy 10, get 3 free!).  Buy twenty and get 7 free (that’ll cost you just $22.35!)

After the sale, hardcovers at Papa’s will be $1.95 each, or five for $7.95.  Hardcovers at Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps are individually priced.

Quick Details:

  • Prices Are Firm.  We do not negotiate on our prices… they’re set based on what the item cost us and our expenses in running the shop.
  • Sales. We do occasionally have sales or reduce the prices on an item (usually if the item has been in the shop for at least 6 months with plenty of marketing).  If so, that reduced price will be posted.
  • Holding Items.  Sorry, not without payment.  We’ve been screwed on this more than once, and won’t do it any more.
  • Questions.  This is tough… I’d like to be responsive to everyone who has questions, but I work full time as a social worker, and full time at this shop hoping that someday it will make enough money so I can retire from that social work job.  This means I have very limited time to respond to questions, especially if those questions have already been answered in this blog or on our various posts.  So I may not have time to respond…

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – it was his baby.

He loved me, and oh how I loved him.

Follow our blog at, in honor of my husband, and all others who have been lost to internal demons that in the end, overwhelmed them.

All of the profits after expenses from Heritage Collectibles, Books & Maps and Papa’s Thrift Shop will go to help fund The Warrior Project, a suicide prevention drop-in and counseling center in the process of being developed.

(Please Note: The Warrior Project is in no way intended to be reflective of, or piggy back off, Wounded Warriors which serves those military personnel wounded after September 11, 20o1.  Like too many others, John was a warrior long before then.)
