Shipping Policy

Thank you for visiting and shopping at The Literate Lizard Online Bookstore. Following are the terms and conditions for our shipping policy. Note that we are online-only and do not have a physical bookstore for in-person pickup.

Domestic Shipping

All orders are processed within 2-3 business days. Orders are not processed or shipped on weekends and holidays.

If we are experiencing a high volume of orders, shipments may be delayed by a few days. Delivery delays can occasionally occur.

Media Mail has longer delivery time and is not insured.

Shipping rates & delivery estimates

Shipping charges for your order will be calculated and displayed during checkout. If you choose to have the books shipped as they become available, the total shipping charge is likely to be higher than what is calculated during checkout.

When your order has been shipped, you will receive an email notification from us. You can login to the website at any time to check the status of the order and the tracking number.
