Browsing and searching
I Can’t find what I’m looking for!
If the book you are looking for cannot be found by us it usually means that the book has been out of print for more than 6 months and therefore won’t be in our database, or this book is a title that is not readily available from our normal suppliers.
With our database of approximately one million readily available titles the vast majority of titles being searched will be found, but if you can’t find what you are looking for please contact us with your enquiry and we will investigate further for you.
How do I browse your books?
On the left hand side is a list of categories. Simply choose a category that interests you and click through the available sub-categories until you have the closest results for your needs.
You are also able to “Refine” your results by a number of choices (format, publication country, or release date).
In most cases this will leave you with a manageable list of books to browse.
How do I search for a particular book I’m interested in?
At the top of every page on our site there is a search box. You are able to search here with either a title or ISBN.
For a more detailed search where combinations of information can be used please go to our advanced search page
A book I'm interested in has no price listed!
A small number of titles have not had pricing information supplied from their publisher, in such cases please contact us with the details and we will investigate and update the price. Before we do so we will make sure this price is the best available from any major online bookshop in New Zealand.
What do your availability messages mean?
Every book in our database will have an “availability message” that will let you know whether a book is available and approximately how long it will take for us to dispatch it to you.
This information is supplied to us by our suppliers and publishers and is updated on a regular basis, we rely on the accuracy of the information from these suppliers and publishers and in most cases it is correct.
If any availability information proves to be incorrect after you place an order we will contact you immediately to keep you informed.
If you require any clarity or more information regarding an “availability messages” on a particular title please contact us with your enquiry.
