    Some of our discounted stock is "remaindered" or "marked" by the publishers. The publishers do this by placing a black stripe on the base of the book. We have attempted to display this to online customers by listing "REMAINDER" in the description of the book. We cannot accept returns because a book is marked by the publisher. If for some reason a book isn't listed as REMAINDER, we will advise the customer before processing the order.

    Should you change your mind once you have received your order, we may at our discretion offer a credit note or exchange.  Please contact us for approval.  All change of mind returns must be returned in a mint, unread condition together with proof of purchase within 14 days of purchase.
