How do I calculate delivery time?

To calculate the number of days it will take for you to receive your order, consider the number of days it will take us to process and pack your order, plus the number of days it will take the delivery service to handle your order.

Estimated Delivery Time = Order Processing Time + Shipping Time

The availability of each item is clearly labeled throughout the site. You'll find that many items are labeled "In Stock," which means that your order will generally be processed and ready to ship within 24 hours after being placed. Larger orders may require additional processing time, and you may want to call us at (800) 201-3550 to check quantity availability before you order. The number of days required for shipping also depends on the shipping method you select.

For example, if you ordered an "In Stock" book and selected Next Day Air shipping, your total delivery time would be 2-3 business days (1 to 2 business day(s) to process, plus 1 business day of shipping time).

At times during the processing of your order, an item's stock status may change. You will be notified of any changes in stock availability by email notification. We do everything within our ability to work with publishers and other vendors to make sure your title is available to ship as stated on

Please allow additional delivery time for all orders placed during the holiday season.

Titles selected from our New & Used Marketplace usually ship in 1 to 2 days. This is because our partners ship directly to you. We work closely with our New & Used Marketplace partners to get your order to you as soon as possible.
