          --- The KC "STIMULUS" : A 10 Percent Markdown ---  

 As an anti-recession move, KingChamp Books has reduced all prices on its own web site by 10 percent. This rewards customers who purchase KingChamp's inventory at rather than through marketplaces that charge ever-rising commissions and shipping fees. Thank you for your loyalty. Although the federal government contends the Great Recession has ended, KingChamp has extended its "Stimulus"  discounts into 2017.


 Please search or browse our inventory by using the search box on the lefthand side of this page or clicking on the browse-by-category link. Feel free to e-mail to confirm availability and reserve a title for 14 days. If you can't find what you need, please fill out our off-line search form and we will search our off-line inventory, other bookstores and book search services for you.

If we don't have the book you need, please try the independent booksellers listed on our Links page. Displayed below is a box that allows you to search the inventories of dozens of other small dealers simultaneously. They, like KingChamp Books, are affiliated with the bookselling portal:


 U.S.: Media Mail rate $3 first book, $1 additional. Priority, $6.00 first book, $2 additional. International: International Priority, $20 and up each book. International First Class also is available, but in some cases, it may be more expensive than International Priority.

NOTE: Despite U.S. Postal Service rate increases every year from 2006 through 2017, KingChamp Books continues to use its 2005 domestic shipping rates to keep your total price as low as possible. The 2007 increase eliminated ocean shipping rates for overseas shipping. KingChamp uses International 1st Class and Priority Mail envelopes whenever possible to provide the lowest rates available.
