Introducing the latest in retro-nostalgic holiday fun -- "Halfy Call-A-Days," the Half Price Books Holiday Hotline! 

Our talented Bibliomaniacs are at it again! They sing, they write poetry, they give great book, music and movie recommendations . . . and they can really spread the holiday cheer! So this year HPB created a toll-free line where you can dial in for holiday greetings any time, any place, straight from our Bibliomaniacs to you! Hurry, don’t delay! Call 1-855-HPB-FONE right now!

Our HPB Halfy Call-A-Days Kazoo Crew gives you a special preview!

So, grab a cup of holiday tea or cocoa at your desk, at home by the fire or even while you wait in line at the grocery store and take a moment to relax and enjoy the holidays. Dial up Jim Swayze at 1-855-HPB-FONE that's (toll-free) 1-855-472-3663.

Add it to your contacts and call back often!

If you are wondering what you might hear, some options include:

  • A special greeting from the Half Price Books Santa Claus
  • T'was the Night Before Christmas in the Bookstore, an original poem written by Elizabeth E. on the HPB Development team (and read by Tim, our HR director)
  • Up On the Housetop performed by the Buy Guy
  • A Holiday Funny brought to you by Our Customer Service Department
  • Auld Lang Syne  performed by some Caroling Marketeers
  • And a bonus track from Jim Swayze!

Our warmest wishes to you this festive season! – Becky
