V.I.P.
If you previously bought from us for more than $100, then you deserve a special treatment. From now on you are considered a V.I.P. and you can buy selected books at the VIP Price (with savings up to 30%). When ordering, you wil be charged the regular price and we will send you an instant refund (equal to Regular price minus VIP price).
Let's Make A Deal
Each week we come up with 100 different deals. Each deal is composed of one used book and one new book. They are scattered among the pages of the Magic Books section and are valid on Mondays only. All the deals are advertized one week in advance.
Shipping Charges
Shipping charges are calculated according to the parcel's weight.

To keep charges as low as possible, orders are shipped via the surface postal service (small orders in bubble envelopes, large orders in carton boxes).

Up to 7 oz.:
$3.64
Up to 9 oz.:
$7.48
Up to 18 oz.:
$9.92
Up to 35 oz.:
$14.92
