We will have your web order shipped within two working days of receipt. We ship USPS to addresses in the United States and Canada. We will email you a confirmation upon shipment.
We update stock levels at the end of every working day, so they are NOT live. If you wish to check availability of any title, please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-944-6190 between 8:00am and 5:00pm PST Monday through Friday. You can also place your order over the phone if you wish.
When a book is marked as Temp out of Stock, it means that we do not have any copies of the book in our warehouse. We have ordered copies from the publisher and are simply awaiting the next shipment. The average time between shipments is 4-6 weeks.
As we do not charge your card until we ship your order, you should place your order, ensuring that you will get a copy as soon as the title arrives. If we do not receive any orders for a title, it is possible that our ordering system will not order any copies from the publisher until we do.
Please call 1-800-944-6190 and our customer service representatives will help you.
