Flash Sale - Feb 14-20, 2019See more
It's another flash sale! This one is mostly Bible commentaries plus a few other things thrown in, with discounts up to 90% off! Ask us about sets and bulk quantities -- we might be able to give a little more off. We've got to clear these out. 

They're only here until they're sold or through next Wednesday, then we're sending them to our buyer in the States.

Book Buybacks & Donations

We host Follett Books for buybacks four times a year (beginning and end of every semester). Here's how it works: 

  • We give Follett a list of the books we want and they give students 50% of retail price for these titles.
  • Follett also has lists from other colleges and universities. If a book is not on the Ambrose list but is on another school list, Follett pays 17-20% of retail for these titles.  
  • If your book is not on any of the lists, you can donate through a Better World Books drop box outside our store.
