How to Buy a Book Online

Your Shopping Cart
Anytime you see Add To Cart you can click on the link and add that book to your shopping cart. You can view what's in your cart at any time by clicking the shopping cart link in the upper right hand corner of the screen. Once you have finished shopping, you can check out and choose whether you want the books shipped to you or if you want to pick them up at the store. If you are picking them up at the store, you can also choose to pay in advance.

Inventory Status
Riverwalk Books uses a third-party database through indiebound.com, a partnership with independent bookstores across America. One of the benefits of this partnership is that it gives you access to many more books than we could physically fit in our store. Before placing an order, please note your book's inventory status.

  • Ships in 1-5 Days: We currently do not have the book on our shelves but it can be shipped to you that quickly. There are warehouses across the country that are ready to ship your items so that it can be delivered in the quickest time possible.

  • Out-of-Print: These books are not available at any warehouse or from any publisher. The listing is merely for reference. However, if you call the store we may be able to locate a used copy for you.

  • Coming Soon: Available for Pre-Order: These titles will soon be available and may be ordered today so you will be among the first to receive them!

  • Special Order: This means the book you selected is not stocked at any warehouse. More often than not, the publisher information is inaccurate and unfortunately, our experience shows orders in this category are usually not available.

Much of the information on this site is provided by the publishers, and it is 95% accurate, however should there be a mistake (with over 2,500,000 entries it's quite possible) a real person from the bookstore will contact you and work things out.

Returns Policy
We value you as a customer, and it is important to us that you are completely satisfied with each purchase. For that reason, you may return any item by bringing it in or shipping it to the store.
Items must be:
  • Returned within 30 days of purchase.
  • Accompanied by a receipt, packing list, or other proof of purchase.
  • In saleable condition.

We do not offer cash refunds on web sales. Instead, all returned items will be replaced with an equivalent amount of store credit. Shipping charges will not be included in the total refund amount unless the wrong book or a damaged book was shipped.

Contact Us
If you have any questions, you can contact our booksellers at (509) 682-8901 between 9 am and 6 pm PST everyday.
