~Product Details~

  • Items that "Usually Ship in 1-5 Days" are available! We either have it in stock or we may need to order it from the warehouse. Either way, we place orders twice a week so 1-5 business days is generally accurate, but we will keep you posted with any outliers/exceptions.
  • Items listed as "Email or call for price," "Hard to Find," or "Special Order," are likely not available. That being said, there is a possibility we have it in Used condition or an alternative edition. Please call the store to inquire and/or complete your order, (205) 632-5331, or email the store manager. 
  • "Backordered" books may be available, just not right away. Please call the store to inquire and/or complete your order, (205) 632-5331, or email the store manager.
  •  If you are purchasing a lot of items, please be aware that there may be delays, or they may arrive at different times. If any books are "Pre-Orders" please put those in a separate order, if possible. Much appreciated!
