Hold Policy

If you want us to hold your purchases beyond 1 to 3 days, you can buy the items online and then send us an email at [email protected] to hold them at the store until you can pick them up.

You can call the store to pull a book or item and we will hold it for you for 7 days.

Prior Sale

We operate 7 days / week in our store, so it’s possible that a book you order online may have sold the same day in the store. The database is updated daily, but it is possible that we may have to cancel a purchase because it may have been sold in the store. We can always add the book you were interested into our Request List if this happens.


Book Images

The book images shown on this website are often stock photos and not images from the actual book that we have available. We strive to offer only books in good or great condition. If you have any questions about a specific item you can either come to the store or call us for more details.


Request List

We are happy to watch for books you want, and will notify you via email when they arrive at the store. Call us at (925) 349-9620, come to the store or contact us to get your request added.
