PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING! All the books you order from the Yesterday's Classics website are printed on demand. This means that the books have to be printed before they can be shipped. The printing typically takes 5 business days, and even more during seasonal rushes. Orders of 10 or more books are shipped directly from the printer via UPS Ground, but smaller orders are sent via USPS Media Mail, which can take one to two weeks to arrive at their destination. So please take this lead time for both printing and shipping into consideration when deciding when to place an order.

If you order four or more books, the shipping is free. Otherwise there is a $5.00 shipping charge.

Most of the Yesterday's Classics books are also available at Amazon, though they do seem to go in and out of availability. Some books are listed as "In stock" or "Available to ship in 1-2 days", others as "Available to ship in 2 to 3 months". Some titles at Amazon are currently showing a surcharge, which adds as much as $7.50 to the price of a book. Other titles are only available from third-party sellers, typically at a higher cost and with added shipping charges. Some advantages of purchasing at Amazon include quicker delivery and possibility of discounted prices. So by all means, order from Amazon whatever is in stock there at a reasonable price.
