Click Poster for Purchase Information
We opened a sister site,
barbsteachinghelp.com hosted by tomfolio.com, where
you can buy our best selling books
from this site and more which may not be on this site. So far, most of our best sellers are listed there.
As of Mayh, 2013, we have over 4700 titles there, some of which are used. You will be able to search by category, author, title, or ISBN. And you will be able to buy directly on line with your VISA, MC, or American Express card.
If you search the site above you will in most cases be able to see if a title is in stock, and also the quantity we have. If you saw the book here and it wasn't there, it means I can do a visual double check, and if it's really not here, I might be able to order what you need. Any our our titles which have a BTH number should be on that site if they are in stock, unless we have temporaily removed all listings because of vacation or illness or some other circumstance that makes it impossible to serve you temporariliy. If that has happened, the site will tell you we are on vacation and we will let you know the circumstances on Upcoming Events if we are able.
Most of our used books not on the above site can be found at our Barb's People Builders Store on Tomfolio.com. Many of those are in addition to those listed on this site.
We receive a small commission from some links to third party sites with whom we have an affiliate relationship.
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.
