About The Book Hound's Store In Amsterdam
The Book Hound is located at 16 E. Main Street, just a half mile from Exit 27 of the New York State Thruway in Amsterdam, New York, which is about 30 miles west of Albany. Our hours are Tues-Fri. Noon-5pm and Sat. from 11am to 3pm. We currently do not accept credit cards, so come prepared with cash or a good check. Dealers welcome.
The Book Hound carries books in almost every category; however, we specialize in Religious books, New York State History, Books about Amsterdam, New York, The Mohawk Valley and American History. We also carry a substantial amount of general non-fiction, literature and world history. Currently we have a large stock of older science, physics, math and technology books.
This site sells both used books and remainders. The goal for our inventory is quality not quantity. If, however, you cannot find what you are looking for on our site, our site is your portal to almost all of the books on the internet. If you cannot find a book on our site, click on Links on the left hand side of this page, and you will find a number of sites we recommend for locating and buying books.

A Word About Condition
We sell used books and remainders on thebookhound.net. All of our remaindered books are unused, therefore none will have underlining or worn bindings or library discard markings. However, some will have a little shelf wear or some small flaw that you may hardly notice. Some will have a remainder mark. Remainder marks are not always noted. Overall, all our books are in very good condition, with most being in fine or as new condition.
We attempt to accurately describe the condition of our used books. Our used books range in condition from good to fine. Please read the descriptions of our used books carefully before ordering, so you won't be disappointed.
