Shipping & Returns


  • Almost every shipment we make is by USPS with Tracking.
  • All book are packaged neatly, and will arrive in a padded mailer or box.
  • We occasionally use UPS or FedEx for bulk purchases.
  • Flat Rate Shipping does not apply to shipments leaving the contiguous USA. If there is an overage, we will hold your purchase and send an additional PayPal invoice for the added (actual) shipping fee, less the $3 you paid at checkout. We do not markup shipping or charge handling fees.

    Although all books show available in our shopping cart, we may have to wait a few days to get some purchases in stock. We get deliveries every week and we ship books every week. Please allow for this when ordering. (Allow 4 weeks for delivery although actual shipping is generally quick.)

    If you need your order shipped by express mail, contact us. We don't offer express shipping in our shopping cart, but we will work something out with you if it's urgent. Expect to pay a little extra, of course, since it means we have to drop everything and make a special trip to the post office.
