Shipping Policy

For domestic United States customers, your purchase of a book includes shipping via USPS Media Mail. Last year, the United States Post Office was plagued by labor shortages and shipping delays. In a few isolated cases, delivery of books shipped using the USPS Media Mail were delayed for weeks. If you want to ensure prompt and secure delivery for Holiday 2021, you may elect to pay for expedited shipping services with several different carriers. The last day for shipping and fulfillment of orders is anticipated to be December 15, 2021. Orders received after this date will not be fulfilled until after January 1, 2022. Please, plan accordingly. I cannot refund book purchases due to delays in delivery or damage incurred during transit.
