We're whisking away the curtain to unveil the all-new website representing Island Books. The first thing you should notice is that it doesn't look all that much different from our old one, at least if we've done things right. There's a good bit behind the scenes that's new, but we hope the look and feel will be as familiar and friendly as you've come to expect from us.
The most noticeable change is that you can now search for books and order them right on the site. We're still delighted to hear from you personally, here in the store or by phone or email, but if you need an instant internet fix, we can now accommodate you. And coming soon, e-books!
A Note About Shipping
Our longtime customers know that we've always provided free shipping for the orders we take directly, but things are a little more complicated for web orders. The price of
automation, you might say.
- You can order online for in-store pickup—that's still free.
- You can order online for shipment anywhere in the US. If your total is more than $50, ground shipping is free. If not, shipping charges will apply, depending on where your order is going, what's in it, and how fast you want it to get there.
- If you're patient enough to contact us when the store is open by phone or email (and we'd love to hear from you) we're happy to waive the charges and send your books for free to any US address.
