This site has been designed to make browsing by subject easy, since many people don't know yet what they want exactly, and are looking for ideas. They should probably start with our catalog page and skim down the page until they find the link for the subject they want to browse. Keep in mind that the main subject headings on the catalog pages will take you to new, unremaindered books. We have separate sections for used books, books on sale, and bargain (remaindered books that are new, but discounted by the publishers) books. Each of these sections has it's own categories. If those are your primary interests, click the links given above that will take you to their category lists.
What if I want to find out fast if you have a certain book? Click on the search at the top of every page. This will take you to a page with a search box that will give you several search options in a drop down menu. If you choose ANY WORD, keep in mind that this is exact. If you're looking for Bloom's Taxonomy, type in Bloom's, not Bloom or Blooms. I tried bloom and got Literature in Bloom and nothing for Bloom's. So it pays to be exact. FIND EXACT PHRASE is great for title searches. Enter the title words you are sure of, such as Tom Sawyer if you are looking for The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. This will bring up the most titles, since there are variations on this title.
What if my list has lots of nonfiction or a mixture of nonfiction and fiction? In this case you might want to try the links on the catalog page. Books on similar subjects such as the colonial period or physical science or nature are listed together with descriptions and prices on the same page.
The subject that interests me could be under several categories or historical periods. How do I know where to look? This is where our search feature comes in handy. Just type some key subject words into the box and search. The results will show you all the pages where the words turn up, with enough of the context for you to make some good guesses on the pages that interest you.

We're in the Pacific Time Zone
Our normal office hours when we answer the phone are 10: 30 AM - 4 PM Monday - Friday.
We answer email and ship at other times, but normally take Sundays off.
You can fax your purchase orders to 805-237-8639, but it's good to follow up with a phone call in a couple of days to make sure we got it, if you did not receive a delivery confirmation email. Please include an email address with your purchase order in case we have questions and so we can send your delivery confirmation number to you. You can also attach a signed purchase order to an email.
We prefer you ask your questions about products
and availability by
e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), since that gives us more time to prepare a thoughtful answer and
keeps us from playing phone tag. Please remember to put our email address in
your address book if you have a spam filter or you won't ever get your answer
unless you also leave a phone number. We cannot usually tell you immediately over the phone if a
book is here. We have to walk two blocks to check the warehouse, so I usually
have to call you back or email you anyway. We do check our e-mail frequently
throughout the day when we are at home. If we should be out, and you leave a
message on our answering machine, we sometimes cannot hear the phone number
clearly to return your call. Those are some reasons why we recommend you email
us first. If you want us to call you, please leave your phone number and time
When you do email us, please do not leave the subject blank or just say "Hi" or "Hello" as the subject. We delete those before opening because a lot of spam messages look like that.
We have supplied a subject line in the link provided above that will guarantee your mail will be opened fast.
