Now that you have looked around a bit, it is important to me to know what your impressions are. This (any) site is a work-in-progress. How can I improve it? What did you like - dislike? Please take a moment to record your thoughts. firstname.lastname@example.org It is also an easy way to order the books you want, or to ask about availability.
send me the book list via email email@example.com or call 800-883-5778 afternoons
However you decide to order - Please be sure to include your name, address, payment and the titles you want when communicating. <- you'd be surprised how many forget that important info!
I currently maintain a stock of 2400 +/- titles and am slowly adding new ones as space
allows. Nevertheless, I want to include hundreds more books previously unavailable to me,
so that this web site can boast 2700+ books on New York State! These new titles may not be
in stock when you order them, and may require additional delivery time. While I will make
EVERY effort to keep the most popular titles on hand for speedy delivery to you, I ask
your indulgence and patience should you incur a minor delay.
As much of my packaging material as possible is re-used - cardboard,
styrofoam, etc. Your reuse and proper disposal is encouraged. Sound Fair?
The nature of the book business leaves the unscrupulous too free to
extract the information the book has and simply return it. In this case a few have ruined
it for the rest of us. I generally do not allow returns, and I do everything I can to
avoid them. Please ask me any questions about any book BEFORE you purchase it. If
you are not sure you want it - do not order it. I can't stress this strongly
enough. Besides not having the time to fill and then unfill orders, the wear and
tear on the books is too great. As a last resort, returned books incur a 20% restocking
fee. Refunds will be in store credit only.
National -- UPS . . . . International -- US Postal Service
Costs listed below are approximate, and may be higher or lower than stated.
I do not make money on shipping -- and I try not to lose any.
UPS GROUND SHIPPING RATES based on Zip Codes
I only charge what it costs me - which increases by weight and zone.
I don't make any money on
shipping. UPS even charges me $11 a week just to come here. However -- they insure the
contents up to $100 for free, they can tell me within an hour whether your package is lost
(or not!) so that I may replace it or reassure you, and they offer a tracking service via
their website so you can follow your package's progress even if you can't reach me. That
has to be worth a little extra! (When you order electronically I reply with a confirmation
containing your personal tracking number.)
FOR TRACKING - http://www.ups.com or 1-800-457-4022
Next Day Air, Saturday Delivery, etc. - Requests for additional
service will cost you what it costs me. I can provide an estimate if necessary.
US MAIL COSTS Amounts are approximate only, and represent the minimum charged.
Insurance - add $1 per $50 of value
Priority - 2-3 days average - $5.65 (includes tracking - required) for 1 lb - then it raises by weight and zone - just like UPS, only the higher, and insurance is extra!
International -- What it costs me - I'll get an estimate and email your choices to you - please specify Air or Surface.
Again - Remember -- The Post Office waits 30 days to begin looking for lost
packages and charges for insurance!
US Mail is used at your own risk!
Information about you is not, and will never be, sold, given away, traded, or in any way used for other than my record keeping needs. Your privacy is respected - Period.
While this web site is open all the time -- I can only answer the phone from 10-6 PM daily, Sundays & holidays 12-4. That is when my real bookstore is open. Please check the Community Events page for other days I may be closed if you need to speak to me. At other times you may leave an order on my answering machine.
