Holiday 2020: Shop Early, Shop Local!

Shop Early, Shop Local!

Retailers are anticipating serious supply-chain challenges this Fall, and we are no exception. We expect this holiday shopping season to be very different from previous years for a myriad of reasons, one of which being heightened demand for books! Read on for our recommendations on how to best Shop Early, Shop Local this year:

Due to fulfillment challenges & shipping delays, we recommend the following deadlines if you want your orders to arrive in time for the holidays you should plan to have them placed before:

Shop Small Saturday (the Saturday following Thanksgiving) 

While we anticipate that this amount of time will be sufficient for in-stock orders to ship via media mail and arrive in time for the holidays, we cannot guarantee that this will be the case. 

Know what you want to give already? Order it today!
With expected delays due to high demand, the best way to ensure that you’ll have those hot titles this holiday season is to order them NOW! 

Really excited about an upcoming release? Preorder it! 
Preordering a book is a great way to ensure you won't have to wait to get a book you're excited about. You can search for just about any title on our website, or peruse our Exclusive Editions page to see what forthcoming books we're excited about, or may have a special swag or signed copy offer.
