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.



Our books and postage rates are listed in U.S. dollars since we sell worldwide.  


Postal Rates

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.
