GradingDealers who are otherwise members of prestigious bookselling organizations should know that you can't grade a book Fine if it's remaindered; nor can a dustjacket be graded Fine that is price-clipped. And yet we see this sort of thing -- more and more -- and from all manner of establishments, some presumably reputable.
Thus, we recommend that any prospective online customer insists on a thorough description (such as are issued from these Nooks) and asks all relevant questions when considering the purchase of a collectible item. We're well-versed, here, in the grading process and we do so fairly if not conservatively.
RefundsWe understand all too well the hesitancy of some collectors to make their purchases online, particularly in such cases where books are scarce or costly. We, therefore, stress that these Nooks have been founded on integrity. Your satisfaction is guaranteed, or all costs you've incurred will be refunded -- no questions asked -- providing the book is returned to us in the same condition within two weeks of receiving it.
ShippingThough most booksellers are quite professional and know how to properly handle their wares, I've noticed (being a book-buyer, too) that many online shops can be slipshod and amateurish in their shipping practices. This being so, we'd like to assure you: when you buy from us the item will be nicely and securely presented. It will be gift-wrapped, sealed in a plastic bag to protect it against water damage, encased in bubble wrap and/or foam 'peanuts' and boxed. We ship books out the way we like to receive them. Except, perhaps, in the rare occasion of an inexpensive reading copy, I'd not think of consigning a book from these Nooks to the hard knocks of the postal system in a simple bubble-mailer. You won't get that shoddy handling here.
U. S. Media Mail (5-14 days) is $3.75 and U. S. Priority Mail (2-4 days) is $5.75. For our international customers we offer Airmail for $20 (5-10 days). Canadian customers are an exception to the international rates: we offer Canadians Airmail for $8.50 (5-8 days).
All domestic orders of $50 or more qualify for free shipping -- always! Simply choose the Free Shipping option during checkout. Gift Certificates are also mailed at no cost.
Please inquire about any Express Shipping needs: we can get it to you from Overnight to second day.
To our friends overseas: The U.S. Postal Service will not insure any items shipped Surface Mail: nor is Surface Mail terribly secure or efficient. We therefore recommend that foreign customers select Air Mail for any purchases that may be dear to them. As stated below, we're happy to pay the insurance for any books of distinction, but cannot do so if Surface Mail is the method of choice for delivering your items. Thus, we cannot be responsible for any items shipped in said manner.
InsuranceIt is our policy to pay the insurance for any purchase over $200. Should you like to provide your own insurance for less of a sum, the cost is $1.30 for $50 of coverage, $2.20 for $100, and $3.20 for up to $200 of coverage. Insurance, in such cases, is suggested (simply state your preference in the comments segment during checkout) as we cannot be responsible for books that are lost in transit.
*SALE InformationOur Seasonal Sale prices cannot be combined with any other discounts, though the free shipping offer for all domestic orders of $50 or more always applies.
