These are books that have covers with scuffs or bends, pages with creases, slightly irregular cuts, and/or a few markings here and there. Text and pictures, however, are all intact, so they still give all the information that regular stock does. Scuffed specials are offered at 50% off, or buy 10 or more of single or mixed scuffed titles (limited to inventory on hand) and get 60% off! Buy 100 or more of single or mixed starred titles (*) and get 70% off (limited to inventory on hand) ! All are returnable under our standard policy of 10 days for any or no reason and 30 days for defective stock (including if there are more scuffs than you like). Stock under this program is limited, and quantities vary, so order early before someone else gets your titles.
