We love our website. It allows us to keep our "doors" open 24 hours a day, which allows you to shop locally for books at your convience. Technology is not perfect, so here are a few things to keep in mind when you are ordering online.
Please note that when you see a book on our website, it does not necessarily mean we currently have it in stock. The titles that appear are ones that are available for us to order through our distributor. We can't possibly fit them all on our lovely shelves. If a particular title is currently in stock in the store, you will see that information on the website. If it's not, you'll notice language like "Usually ships in 1-5 days."
If the book you order is not currently in stock, we will order it for you from our distributor the very next business day, and will have it shipped directly to you. This means that your website orders will sometimes be shipped from the store, and sometimes from our distributors. Either way, we'll get you your order as quickly as possible.
It's also worth noting that we have many books and other items (ranging from cards, calendars, to toys) in the bookstore that do not appear on our website. Look at some of our gift ideas for a better idea of the variety of items you'll find when you visit our store. And, of course, feel free to call or email us at if you can't find what you're looking for on the website. Chances are good we'll be able to get it for you!
Picking up your online order in the store
Please do not come immediately to the store after placing your order. We will review your order and let you know if your order can be filled in a timely manner. Most titles that are listed as "Usually ships in 1-5 days" can be here in the store for pick-up in 1-2 days, depending on the availability of the book. There is no charge for shipping for in-store pickup. We will call you when your order is ready to be picked up at the store.
Ordering online - books to be shipped
If you are placing an order to be shipped, please keep the following in mind:
Stock Status for each book
"Usually ships in 1-5 days"
Your book will mostly likely be shipped in 1-2 days depending on availability of a title
"Special Order", "Coming Soon", "Not Yet Published", or "Out of Print"
This is a book that is NOT currently available from the distributor that we use most often to obtain books. This means that in order to fill such an order, we will need to look into other distributors, or to the publishers themselves. And some of these books, while listed in the database, are simply not available anywhere.
We are happy to place pre-orders for books that aren't out yet. We'll call you or ship the book when the book is released. If a book is not available to pre-order on the website, you can call the store 541-386-5353 or email us to place the pre-order.
For Out of Print books, we provide Hard-to-find, out-of-print, and used book searches.
