We offer educators and administrators 20% off regular school purchases and 10% off personal purchases. Extra discounts are available on multiple copies of the same title, and on purchases over $1000. Shipping is free, and we offer free drop-off service on qualifying orders. We accept P.O.s.

Because we don’t have to go through corporate headquarters, we can place orders daily. This means that, in most cases, your books will arrive one to five days after ordering.*
*Customers may experience some delays in ordering due to COVID-19. We thank you for your patience and support!
