Please allow 24 hours for online order processing! If you are on campus, you may find it more convenient to choose your own books in person at the Bookstore.

On Saturday and Sunday, August 27-28, the bookstore will be open 12pm-5pm. Due to the high volume of bookstore traffic it may take us longer than usual to fill book orders, and we can't guarantee that books preordered this weekend will be available for pickup before noon on Monday, August 29. If you need your books before then, please come down to the store to pick out your books in person instead of placing an online order.

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.
