Returns Process

7 Day "This Book Isn't For Me" Guarantee

Picking out a great book can be tricky.  If for any reason you want to return or trade your book please let us know within 7 days of purchase.  We want to be sure that you get a book you enjoy and is what you are looking for - especially if you buy it off our website.  We will credit your bookstore account for 90% of the value of the book and you will receive a code for your store credit which you can use at the bookstore.


If you're not satisfied, simply return the book in its original condition within 7 days of receipt, and we'll credit your account for 90% of the title (or other merchandise, aside from the exceptions below).  There are transaction and handling fees that are paid via the 10% difference.

Please note that we do not accept returns on the following:

  • Books that were not purchased at The Islander Bookshop
  • Books that have damage including dog-eared pages, scuffing, etc
  • Orders for books in quantities of 10 or more (of the same title).
  • Orders for books in quantities of 5 or more (of the same title) exceeding a sum of $300.

Returns should be directed to:

The Islander Bookshop 1315 Mill Bay Road, Kodiak, AK 99615

If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason, please contact us immediately. We promise to do everything we can to make things right.
