March 2021 international updates: We are directing international readers to our Bookshop page as shipping internationally is getting very expensive and complicated. We are suspending shipping to UK addresses while we research the implications of Brexit. Books are “zero-rated” (not taxed) but we are waiting for guidance to see if we have to register with the UK HRMC (HM Revenue and Customs) and submit quarterly returns. (Our shipping software is now asking for a VAT number whenever I put in a UK address.) Please accept our apologies. We will update this further when we have more information.

Our website shows our supplier's inventory. We have a small percentage of that million+ books.
We can get most within:
— 2 days (nearer warehouse)
— 5-7 days (further warehouse)
— occasionally longer (high demand/backlist title)

We do Curbside Pickup like this
— Place your lovely book orders on this website or by phone: 413-203-1717.
— Select either
—— "I would like to pick this order up at the store" under "Pick-Up options"
—— Or, under "Calculate Shipping Costs" choose "In-store pickup" (which means Curbside Pickup) or "Curbside Pickup + donation" (if you'd like to donate to the ECC).
— If we have the books in stock, we'll call or email so that you can pick them up. If we have to order the books we will contact you with an estimated pickup date. We'll reach out again when the books arrive.
— Call when you're at the store, give us your name, and we'll put your books on our Curbside Pickup chair so that we can stay socially distant from one another.
