ORDER: Frequently Asked Questions

If I find a book on your site, does that mean it is currently in stock at your store?

If availability shows "On Our Shelves Now", we most likely have it, unless it is reserved by another customer.

If availability shows "Usually Ships in 1-5 Days", the title is available from our warehouse for shipping to us in 1- 5 days.

If availability shows "Backordered", the title is not available currently at the warehouse, but they are expecting more copies to be delivered.

If availability shows "Special Order - Subject to Availability" means it is probably out of print and not available to us at an affordable price.

IF YOUR ORDER IS TIME SENSITIVE, please call us to check availability and shipping/delivery times.
