In certain instances, your next available book(s) will not be delivered until at least one business day following our receipt of your returned book(s).

Other factors that may affect delivery times, include, but are not limited to, (i) the distance between the distribution centre from which your book(s) was issued and your delivery address, (ii) the timing of your placement or adjustment of books in your Bookrack. We do not process returns or deliveries on National Holidays.
