Free Shipping Service

Your Long Distance, Local Bookstore

One of the primary reasons we can serve as your local bookstore even when you're not exactly local is because we don't charge for shipping.  Here's how it works:

We can ship any order over $10 for free via Media Mail to any address in the US, and even overseas to US military bases and similar outposts.  Non-book items on orders over $10 can ship for free via first class or parcel post, depending on the weight. 

Need your books faster?  Upgrade to Priority Mail!  This paid service gets your books to you in 1-3 business days.

All packages include free tracking, no matter which type of shipping you choose.  You'll receive your tracking information via email as soon as postage is printed, so you always know where your book is, every step of the way.


Have questions about your shipment?*

We employ dedicated order processing and shipping and receiving staff who look after all your orders from the moment they're placed until the moment the packages leave the store, so if you have questions, we're here to help! You always have access to a real human, in a real bookstore.  Give us a call at (231) 946-2665 or send us an email at with any questions or concerns that may arise.  We'll do whatever we can to make sure your books arrive safe and sound!

*Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are a lot of questions about orders right now, and we're doing our best to answer every one as quickly as we can.  Delays may arise at any point from the printing of the book to its arrival on your doorstep, and tracking down the issue can sometimes take a bit of time as we dig into where things might have gone awry.


All the convenience of online shopping, all the personality of a real indie bookstore!

We try to make it as easy as possible to support your favorite independent bookstore.  From free shipping to curated lists and digital audiobooks to Brilliant Books Monthly, we're a full service, 21st century operation that brings you the books and bookish goodies you love wherever you may be.

If you like what we do, please support us. Use this website, send us an email, or come into the store. We'll be delighted to see you!
