Oh, No! No Inventory Update


UPDATE on updating our in-store inventory, so that you can see online just what we have or can get for you: 
Our work-around is sporadic at best and what you see as "in stock" may not be and vice versa.
The only reliable information is that if the status is: "hard to get," that book really is hard to get!
Please give us a call 815-285-2665 or write us chin@booksonfirst.com if you need additional help.
We thank you for your patience.
