Backlisted Books

Backlisted books are books available from the publisher in America and are just waiting for us to order and ship in the Philippines. These books can be ordered in two ways: express and unhurried. Express has no discount as we will ship it using air freight and will only take a week or two to arrive to us. Unhurried is always discounted since it will take two to three months to arrive to us thru sea freight.

To order, just select which type you prefer, state a quantity then add it to your cart.

If you combine a backlisted book with an on-hand book, it will be shipped together when it arrived for convenience and to lessen our carbon footprint.

Tip: Patience is a virtue. We encourage placing items unhurried if you can wait reading the book. If you have a growing backlog of tsundoku (unread but collected books), we suggest you finish them while waiting. Plus, it's cheaper!
