Buying School Textbooks for 2017?

Please note that MOST publishers close for the year in mid-December and only open again towards the middle of January. ALL orders placed after the 15th of December will only be delivered after the 10th of January 2017.

As we hold limited amounts of stock, your order may very well be
affected. Please ensure that you place your textbook orders
as early as possible  to avoid unnecessary stress in the new year.
