Welcome to the home of Dave Shoots, Bookseller. We specialize in old hardcovers and good old-fashioned service! We add new book listings on a weekly basis, so please check back frequently. If you are looking for a particular book which is not in our online stock, please fill in the offline search form and we will attempt to locate a copy for you.

Postal Rates

In January, 2013, Canada Post raised its rates on parcels again - the cost to mail an average-sized book to the US increased by 20% (since we started selling online ten years ago, rates have doubled!).  Unfortunately, Canada Post does not offer a Media Mail rate such as our American neighbours enjoy.  The rates you see on our site are for average-sized books (larger, heavier books will cost more).  We will only charge the actual postage COST - any extra will be refunded to the customer. Even though it takes 20-30 minutes for us to prepare a book for mailing (plastic bag, bubble wrap, custom-made box), we do not charge a handling fee.

Important News

We accept American Express, Mastercard and Visa payments, in addition to checks, money orders, and PayPal. If you feel more comfortable ordering by phone, North American customers can use our toll-free phone line: 1-877-693-7758.  E-mail orders are also welcome (please break the credit card information into two separate e-mails).
