Schools, businesses, libraries, churches and individuals who don't have a wholesaler can still receive a special wholesale rate of just $5.95 per book through our quantity discount offer! Here's how to qualify:

  • Order at least 10 books total (in any combination of titles).
  • Add $1.00 for shipping each book plus $2.00 for handling per address via first class USPS mail (ex.: 10 books = $12 s/h to the same address). For faster shipping options or to use your own carrier account, call (206) 200-9525. You'll be quoted our cost to ship plus $2.00 handling per address.
  • If mailing to a Washington State address, add 8.9% sales tax unless you also provide a Washington state tax exempt number.
  • Don't forget your name, physical address, phone number and e-mail with the order!
  • Payment must be made in advance and all sales are final (i.e., no returns and no exchange of titles).
