Shipping Info
The Book Beat online tries to keep inventory ready and available for immediate shipment. We are also an open store and the occasional item may be temporarily sold-out or discontinued. Most orders will be filled in 48 hours or less. Any problem regarding order status (sold-out or out-of-stock items) will be addressed immediately. Please let us know if you require overnight or RUSH/ priority service. We will try and accommodate any special needs or requests as quickly as possible. Gift wrapping and announcement cards are free on request.

The Book Beat will ship anywhere within the United States and to most foreign countries. Most books and items under 3 lbs can be shipped via USPS Media Mail for $3.50 + $1.00 for each additional item within the continental USA. This fee is calculated automatically with each order. We include confirmation of delivery with every shipment.

Insurance, long-distance, foreign orders, and priority shipments may need to be assessed an additional charge. We will contact customers immediately regarding any changes in shipping. Our guidelines and charge rates can be seen online at We can also ship via Fed-Ex overnight, ground or reverse charged to a customer's account.

We suggest that orders be sent insured that are valued over $50. Buyers will need to OK any additional shipping or insurance charges.
