Who Are We?

One Dollar Book Swap is an offshoot of Murfbooks.  Our primary company is an online bookstore that sorts through thousands of pounds of salvage books per day to find the treasure that we can pass along to you at an incredible discount.  We have everything and the kitchen sink (almost), from books to dvds, cds, and even select vhs tapes and software.  


We have been searching for a way to open our doors to the public without distracting from our core online business for two long years and we finally found the way with our new warehouse.  Located at 1723 Webster St. in Dayton, Ohio we have finally enough room to open up the warehouse to the public so we can share all of our amazing finds with you.  Since the move we have been working tirelessly to make sure we have all of our books situated into over 40 categories so you can find exactly what you are looking for.  If we don't have the category you would like please let us know and we will do our best to get it for you.

I addition we buy textbooks for cash, and we do trade ins.  That is where the swap part comes in.  For every two qualifying books you bring in, you get $1 in trade credit to spend anywhere in the store.  

If you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to ask at greg@murfbooks.com or you can call us at
