"Bargain Table" represents a limited supply of discounted copies available while supplies last. 

These books are new (not "second-hand").  A few are titles we have chosen to discontinue.  A few we have discounted simply because they have become "worn" through our travels.  The majority of titles are "remaindered" by the publisher, purchased at such an incredibly low cost, that we are delighted to pass on substantial savings to you.

"Remainders" are publisher's overstocks.  They may be marked by the publisher in the form of a marker line or dot on the bottom edge of the pages.  Wherever "remainder marks" are placed on the book, they do not interfere with the readability of its contents.  Some are in "as new" condition.

Have fun browsing through "Bargain Table."  We think you'll find some great buys!
