New Books & Special Orders

All of our locations carry an extensive selection of new books discounted from Canadian cover price

If we don't have exactly what you want, we can order any in-print book, and usually at a discount to Canadian cover price. (Some specialized academic & professional books don't qualify for these discounts, but our pricing on these specialty titles will be identical to, or slightly cheaper than that of & Indigo)

Our special order pricing is identical to, and often cheaper than, that offered by Amazon & Indigo, and, unlike them, we never charge for shipping.

Plus, if you order $50 or more of books from us at once, we'll deliver your books anywhere in the Lower Mainland (Pemberton to Hope) free of charge!

We take hundreds of orders daily via phone, email, & Twitter.

Phone or Twitter is the quickest way to reach us. Email is best for long lists (ie., school course lists) but can run up to 24 hours for a reply, because we may need to contact publishers and wholesalers directly to offer you the very best price.

Please include a phone number where we can reach you with any emailed or tweeted request; we will need to verbally confirm timing & pricing, and take payment details from you before we get your book(s) on the way.

We also bulk-order titles for book clubs, schools, businesses and government organizations.

Whether you need a single copy of a technical book, or 200+ copies of Who Moved My Cheese? for a corporate retreat, we're here to help at every stage of the order process.

Please call 604.876.4311, email or tweet, we look forward to hearing from you!
