Here are some of the services that we offer as an independent local book shop.
Stocking Self-Published Books
Are you a self-published author who is interesting in letting us stock your book in our shelves? We would be happy to consider adding your title to our humble collection. We are looking for unique and interesting titles that will liven up our selection. However, since we are approached by many authors regularly to ask us to stock their books, we may not be able to immediately keep up with all the correspondence that come via e-mail, phone, and in person.
Special Book Orders
Are you looking for a specific book that we do not have on our shelves yet? Sometimes our shelves are not big enough to hold every book that you want to read. Because of this, we welcome special book orders. Just let us know and we can arrange to have it delivered to the store. Our warehouse can even ship directly to your home, if that is what you prefer.
In most cases, we can get books within 2 business days. However, if we are ordering from the publisher directly, it can take up to 10 days. In some cases, especially if the book is difficult to find, is out of print, out of stock, self-published, or from a very small publisher, it might take a few weeks to get to our store. If we are not able to obtain the book from our usual sources, we will have to do some research and get back to you about the cost and estimated arrival date.
In order to avoid disappointment, it is always best to order the book at least two weeks before you need it. We also require a deposit of 30 percent on special book orders, which you can pay when you place the special order with us. You can also prepay the full amount if you wish so that there is no need to transfer more money once the book is delivered. For special orders that we cannot obtain from our usual distributors, full payment is required. Special orders are not returnable for any reason, aside form manufacturing defects.
