What do the ICONS on your website mean?

Some of the books on your website are not available to Add to Cart, instead they have a REQUEST ITEM button. Why are these books different?

Request Item books are classic and hard-to-come-by secondhand books for which we have long waiting lists for copies. As such, they rarely make it onto our website for sale. So that customers are able to add their name to the waiting list for these books, we list them online as request items. The copies you see on the website are not in stock or available to purchase. They are 'generic' entries we list for requesting purposes only. Once your name has been added to the waiting list we will contact you directly when a copy becomes available and your request is the next in line. It is always worthwhile responding to these offers promptly to ensure you secure the book.
