3. If there are items included in your order that are not available currently in Australia we will cancel those items and suggest you order again once normality has returned.

Delivery Timelines

1. Orders of in-stock items will be shipped by our web team as quickly as we can. At the moment, in-stock items are being dispatched in 3-6 business days, with further delivery delays expected from Australia Post. Delivery times will vary depending on the location the package is being sent to. Please note, you will not be charged until your order is ready to be dispatched.

2. Our stock data is updated on the website every day, but availability may change throughout the day for in-demand items. A title showing as in stock may not currently be available. We will advise you of this if we don’t have more copies imminent.

3. Once items are lodged with Australia Post Readings cannot be responsible for lost or delayed packages but will endeavour to track orders where possible. If delays are experienced please check in with your local Australia Post office and if your order hasn’t arrived after 3 weeks please contact us. For more information about deliveries visit Australia Post.

4. The delays at Australia Post mean we can also no longer ensure the timely delivery of Express Post parcels.

5. By placing an order online, you agree not to hold BOOK REVIEW liable for any loss or damage directly or indirectly arising out of or in connection with any delay or failure to deliver within the estimated time frame.
