CHRISTMAS ORDERS
 

If you need delivery for Christmas the package must ship by Express Mail. Due to the heavy volume of mail at the post office at this time of year, media mail may take longer then normal for delivery. Express mail will be billed at actual cost.


CLEARANCE SALE
 

We are having our annual clearance sale on hundreds of books and DVDs. Many of these titles are in limited supply and most will not be restocked when sold out. The sale runs until February 15th, 2015 and is limited to stock on hand. No points will be given on clearance items.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS
 

Unfortunately once again the US Post Office has raised shipping rates. This year has seen a significant increase in postage costs. One of the most effective ways to reduce postage costs is to combine your orders into 1 large order. The US Post Office offers flat rate boxes, the smaller size can hold 6 Morning Sun sized books, while the larger box can hold about 10. After about 3 books, the flat rate box is a cheaper option then weight based packages- if you then fill the box, any books after the first 3 ship for no additional postage. If you have any questions about what will fit in a box do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to help you out.
