Happy holidays, readers!

Due to the holiday surge in orders, we strongly recommend that you use USPS Priority mail or UPS options for any gifts. Orders shipped through Standard USPS Media Mail may be subject to unforeseen delays.

To maximize the chance of packages being received in time for December 25, we recommend ordering as soon as possible before these deadlines. Please note, unforeseen delays are present.

For Hanukkah

STANDARD (USPS Media Mail): no later than November 27th

EXPEDITED (USPS Priority, UPS Surepost, and UPS Ground): no later than December 1st

For Christmas & Kwanzaa

STANDARD (USPS Media Mail): no later than December 13th

EXPEDITED (USPS Priority, UPS Surepost, and UPS Ground):  no later than December 18th

Our return policy states that all returned orders must be posted within 30 days of their initial delivery date. If you are the recipient of a gift that you'd like to exchange for store credit, customer service can credit your user account upon receiving tracking information for your posted return. Return postage for non-wanted returns is to be covered by recipient. Please reach out to customer service via email (info@bookshop.org).

Thank you so much for supporting independent bookstores. As always, we encourage you to shop local directly at your favorite bookstore when possible, and to shop early with them this holiday season!
