The Reading Well has been selling used children's books in very good-to-excellent condition over the Internet since the mid-1990's. Starting with a small inventory gathered at used books stores and thrift shops as supplemental reading for our two children whom we home-schooled through 8th Grade, we rescued and added more original-printing books in such early series as Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, Bobbsey Twins, Landmark Books, Signature Books, We Were There, Childhood of Famous Americans, Sugar Creek Gang, Boxcar Children, Happy Hollisters, Pony Pals, Saddle Club, Thoroughbred, plus Golden Books, Elf Books and Wonder Books.
Later on, in 2007, we added a store (www.etsy.com/shop/readingwell) on Etsy.com to sell gently used craft books and cook books. On this site, you will find many books that have not been on our original reading.com website.
We are phasing out many of the book series, so if you are interested in completing your collection through bulk purchase, please let us know - we will give you a great deal. As we build the site, we will be sure to highlight any series that we no longer wish to keep. If you are considering starting a used book business of your own, we would also be interested in hearing from you.
