A La Carte


Books in this room are nonfiction, many are pre-owned, some are new, others are publisher and reviewer copies, and all are traditional print books. The collection includes books commonly required in private university and graduate school courses, difficult to find books, rare books, collector’s items and a few highly sought after editions. Sprinkled in among the indie and alternative works are some mainstream-popular books that were donated. We hope you will forgive us for this.

With the exception of selected new books you can purchase directly through the PayPal system, orders for most books in this room are handled by a real live human (imagine that!) who will send you an invoice via email and ordering is simple:

1-Tell us what titles you want and your name and shipping address* on the contact form.

2-We will add the USPS shipping charges and send you an invoice via email. The invoice will contain a secured link to pay for your books via credit card or PayPal.

3-When we receive confirmation from the payment processor that the invoice has been paid we will ship your book(s).  It’s that easy!

*Sorry, while our e-books can now be purchased from all over the world, due to increases in shipping costs, we can only ship print copy books to U.S. contiguous states.
