FAQ

What are the payment options?

Hello there! We take debit or credit card via our online shopping portal set up through Wix. Wix's payment platform is safe and secure. 

What are the shipping options?

Shipping is a $4 flate rate, unless your order is over $40 - then it's FREE! After you've placed your order, it'll ship within 1-3 business days. USPS Media Mail usually takes around 5-8 business days to arrive at its destination. At this time, Miss Read Books LLC can only ship to customers based in the USA. Please note, due to the COVID-19 pandemic (& fascism), USPS shipments may take a few more additional days than estimated to arrive. If you would like to arrange for faster shipping, please contact nyasha@missreadbooks.org. 

What is your return policy?

At this time, Miss Read Books does not generally accept returns or exchanges. If it’s within 30 days of your purchase and you are unhappy, we encourage you to contact nyasha@missreadbooks.org — please keep the book and the packing slip. We want our customers to be satisfied and will work with you towards a solution! Unfortunately, if it's past 30 days of your purchase or the condition of the book(s) are worse than how they were originally delivered, we will not be able to accept any returns or exchanges.

Notice a mark?

If you've noticed a sharpie mark on the exterior of your book (always a discreet dot or dash along the edge of the pages of the book, never on the cover or actually inside of the book), don't worry! Some of our titles we carry are excess publisher copies -- they're in 100% new condition & have never been read. The marks simply indicate that they were in excess, so they are not fraudulently returned to the publisher.

Do you ship to prisons? 

Yes! Although every prison has different rules on what is or is not OK to send, Miss Read Books will reach out to confirm on our customer's behalf if it is possible to send a book or books. In general, prisons will only allow paperback books and have a maximum number of books allowed per inmate (usually 3). If you'd like to place an order to an inmate, please email the details to nyasha@missreadbooks.org -- we are happy to look into it for you and ensure your thoughtful gift can reach its recipient.
