We strive to keep stock on our website as up to date as possible, getting books into the world as quickly as we can, but for a number of reasons we cannot guarantee arrival dates on orders, both online and in store. 

If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to chat with a bookstore associate, or contact us by phone or email. We will always be honest with you about order timelines.

Thank you for your love and support, you're what keep our doors open. Happiest of holidays, and keep fighting the good fight.
