Can you order a book for me that isn't listed on the site?


I ordered a book and it hasn't come in. What happened?
The short answer is -- I have no idea. Here's why.

When you click on a link to an Amazon.com book, you are taken to the Amazon.com website. From that point on, everything about your order is handled by Amazon.com -- my part is over. I have no way to find out what happens with your order; I am notified that a copy of that book sold through my site, but not who bought it, or when it shipped, or anything else. If you bought the book through a link to a non-Amazon bookstore, I don't even find out that much.

If you bought the book through Amazon.com, what you need to do is go to their site and click on the "Your Account" button at the top of the page. This takes you to the "Your Account" page, which has a section called "Where's My Stuff?". You can use the links in this section to check on the status of your order. I don't know where to look on any of the other linked bookstores, although I believe Barnes and Noble has a similar system.

Can you order a book for me that isn't listed on the site?
No. I don't do any direct sales of books -- all book sales are handled completely by Amazon.com or by other linked booksellers. I just don't have the time or the budget to handle reselling. Time permitting, I'd be happy to try to help you find an online bookstore that does offer it.
