ORDERING BOOKS ONLINE

 

Please note that at this time, we are only shipping within the United States, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.  We will not be able to fulfill any foreign orders.

We are not a specialty outlet.  This means that we do not rate the condition of books, nor do we price for that.  The books you purchase will come to you in a variety of used conditions, but will always be intact and readable.  (The only exception to this are books that are listed separately and specifically on this website with prices, as these are books of exceptional quality and/or rarity.)

1)  Send us your request by e-mail. Please provide us with the full title of the book and the author. 

2)  We will check stock and let you know if we have what you're looking for and what the total cost will be, along with procedures for sending us payment.  Most used books will be priced at approximately half the cover price plus shipping.  Older books at a much lower cover price will be priced at a minimum to be determined. 

If we don't have what you're looking for, we'll let you know.  You have the option of having us add your request to our computerized customer "wants" list.  Let us know if you have a deadline for getting your book-- otherwise we will keep it on our list till either the book comes in, or 1 month has passed without the book coming in.  At that 1 month point, we will send you an e-mail letting you know we have been unable to get your book, and delete the request from our system.  You can try your request again and we will try for another month, following the same procedure above.

3)  Upon receipt of payment, your books will be mailed by US Postal Service, using Media Mail.  We use Media Mail to keep your costs down.  Mailing time is generally slower than 1st Class or other shipping methods, and can take a week or more to arrive.  We do not charge a handling fee. Shipping is not per book, but per order and is based solely on the total weight of your order. 

To give you a general idea of what shipping will cost via media mail, an average mass market paperback weighs between 6 and 8 ounces.  These are the rates listed by the US Postal Service and are subject to change by the USPS:
