book arrived today and I was most impressed by the packaging. If only all the
books I buy come so well wrapped. You should give a master class! I especially
liked the use of Magic tape with the ends turned over for easy peeling- an
excellent idea which I will now blatantly copy. Thanks

Is there anything really free in this

only available in the USA. You will receive free delivery confirmation and
tracking via the U.S.P.S. on all books. Free media mail offer is only available
through our website or by phone and mail orders only. Not only do you get media
mail for free, you’ll get up to six free products/services when you buy directly

Six things? I only

reading… we have to get some fun out of this!
Will my book arrive in a mailer and not well protected if I select FREE
media mail shipping?
You still get top quality packaging and
shipping. We use sturdy boxes. All books are carefully packaged, with quality
packaging materials: bubble wrapped and 4-sided protection. Books with
dustjackets are supplied with archival quality mylar covers--free. We ship

How long until my book
Media mail usually takes any where from 5-21 business
days (there’s the catch). This is not a good choice if you have a short deadline
for the arrival of your package.
What if I
need it sooner?
We can offer you the same great service using
Priority mail from the U.S.P.S. for $8. 95. Shipping times are 2-3 days to most
areas in the U.S.A. If you need to have a book arrive within a short time period
for a birthday or holiday, you should select priority mail or express mail,
depending on your time frame.
During the Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa (did
we miss anyone?) shopping season, from Thanksgiving through December 25, media
mail tends to get bogged down and is not the best choice for books meant to
arrive in time for the holidays.

nice, but not crazy!
You say anyone can call
the store to check on a book?
Yes; we love to have customers call
us! We offer two ways to call, from the traditional means (the telephone--your
dime!) to the latest technology: calling from your computer (no dimes required).
Download the free software at www.skype.com and give us a call.

No, it’s free.
Don’t you add the cost of this free stuff to the price of your
No. We offer the same quality books at the same fair market
price on all on-line venues like Amazon.com, ABE.com, Alibris.com,
Choosebooks.com, IOBA.com, and our own website.
How can you afford to do this if the other sites charge
It’s simple. We are willing to lose money on shipping to
encourage customers to come directly to our site. We take the commissions &
fees that those larger sites would have charged us on your purchase, which adds
up to half the shipping cost or better, and pass the savings on to you.
Encouraging you to buy directly from our website saves you money and we hope it
will help us build a loyal, satisfied customer base.
