Help with Placing a Web Order

1. Find Your Book

In the "Search Books" field on the right-hand sidebar of our site (or from the "Main Menu" > "Shop" > "Search" page), type in any Title, Author, keywords, or the specific ISBN to find your book.

2. Notice if It's "On Our Shelves Now"

Click on any title to be taken to the info page about that book. Notice that it tells you before you add it to your cart if we have the book "On Our Shelves Now." You can also see how many we have (updated every hour), in case it's a very popular title that might go fast.

3. Add a Book to Your Cart

Once you click "Add to Cart" you can continue shopping, or proceed to checkout.

4. Proceed to Checkout

The first part of your "checkout" process asks you to either: 1) Login with an existing account; 2) Checkout as a Guest by using just your email address; or 3) Create a New Account that will securely remember your customer info, such as Billing address and Payment info.

Note: Any sensitive info is stored off-site, electronically, and is up to the security standards required by current e-commerce law: encrypted and only accessible to the Payment gateway providers. For more about this, see our privacy policy here.

5. Pickup or Delivery

In the "Calculate Shipping Costs" you can choose "Curbside Pickup" or a mail delivery option.

If You Choose Curbside Pickup 
We still need time to process your order; It does not mean your order will be automatically ready if you just show up. A bookseller will manually fill your order and communicate with you via your preferred method (phone or email) to let you know when your order is ready for pickup.
Then, just look for the Curbside Pickup tent next to the parking lot any time during our normal business hours.

6. Payment

You have a choice of Paypal, Credit Card, or Gift Certificate.

NOTE: Please only choose "Gift Certificate" if your available amount will cover the entire cost of your order here.
If you will need to use some on Gift Certificate, and then pay the remainder with a Credit Card or Paypal, you will need to select that OTHER method here first. Then, add in your notes to us (Below) that you'd like to use up a Gift Certificate first before we charge the remainder to the method you've selected here.
Trust us, it works this way, and not the other way around, even if you think it shouldn't. :)

7. Comments

Say hello, write us a poem, or explain that you have a gift certificate to use for part of your order!

When you Click "Review Order" you will get one final chance to make sure everything is as it should be before you have a final button to confirm!
