Please allow 48 hours for textbook orders to be filled during the weekend of January 23-26. If you are concerned about having books before classes start, it will be considerably faster for you to purchase books off the shelves at the store!

Compare Prices

Ordering from the bookstore is an easy way to assure you purchase the right book in time for classes, with hassle free returns. The bookstore also provides competitive used pricing, a broad rental program, and textbook scholarships.

We know price is important, and we strive to get you the lowest prices on textbooks. Sometimes, however, another online source can beat our prices. Our Price Comparison website allows you to see the Reed College Bookstore price right alongside those from Amazon, Half.com, and others. In addition, our comparison website allows you to see ebooks available through our partnership with CourseSmart.
