Nelly Dean's Used Books


About Us

the 'bookmobile'
Nelly Dean's Used Books is the result of way too much reading and book-buying by founder Lauren Spath.  An avid reader since childhood,  Lauren could think of no better way to share her love of books than by creating this site, where people can share and exchange books at a low cost.  Unlike other used book stores, which can charge nearly as much as a new bookseller, Nelly Dean's Used Books maintains no storefront, which allows us to sell already read books at much lower costs. 

We are based in Alexandria, Virginia.

Who is Nelly Dean?

Nelly Dean is the housekeeper at the fictional Thrushcross Grange, narrator of Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.
