About Time Tested Books

Since 1980, Time Tested Books has provided the Sacramento area with quality second hand and new books. We have an excellent selection of books, with tens of thousands of volumes on our shelves. In the 1990s, we added a small vinyl record section, where many excellent and obscure records sit. Two thousand seven saw Time Tested move in a newly renovated space next door. The move has allowed us to do literary and musical events, as well as lectures and book signings. Our stock ranges from very low prices reading copies to rare collectibles. We deal with both hard covers and paperbacks. We also special order new books. While our strengths are in history, literature, political science, philosophy, biography, and social sciences, we have an excellent selection of drama, art & film history, children's books (including older children's series), mystery, poetry, science fiction, sports, and science. We buy books and records for cash or trade credit. We are proud to be a locally owned, independent book store with a knowledgeable and friendly staff. Please enjoy browsing though our listing. And stop by the store when you are in town!
