Each box of Books By The Yard contains approximately three linear feet of books. Because of the differences in sizes of various book formats, it is impossible to estimate the exact number of books per box. In order to keep the price low and competitive, we are unable to offer any customization of color, size or title. Not only do we screen our books for quality, but also for content in order to avoid offensive content.

Our rule of thumb is: Measure the amount of display space you would like to decorate with books. Take the number of linear feet and divide by three. This will give you the approximate number of boxes of Books By The Yard that you will need. Due to variation in book sizes, this measurement may vary slightly, so keep in mind that you may need to order an extra box to cover your space.

In most cases, we are able to ship orders within one to two business days. If you have questions about your order, please call our toll free Customer Care line at 800-883-2114.

Categories of books available are: Mixed Hardbacks, Reader's Digest, Law Books, Reference Books, Vintage Binding, and Made to Order.

Reference are mostly encyclopedia volumes, mostly taller in format, these will be in dark and neutral colors, like brown, black and burgundy. These provide a nice "faux antique" look and give a variety in sight lines. Mixed Books are a more contemporary look, mostly fiction. We do screen these for content as well as quality. The sizes and heights will vary, these are usually smaller than the Reference or Law Books. Law books create the ambiance of a legal office, not unlike the lawyer's offices seen on TV. They are very conservative looking, mostly made from "Federal Register" law books, along with other books in the neutral colors.

Yes, Books By The Yard is available to all individuals across the Continental United States.

If you're seeking color-sorted books (e.g. all Black, Red, Blue, White, etc.), a collection of books on a specific topic (e.g. Architecture, Fashion, Mystery) all paperback books ideal for re-purposing, or if you'd like your books hand-wrapped. Call or email and let us know what you have in mind and we'll prepare an estimate for your bespoke or "Made to Order" Books By The Yard.
