I encourage you to bring the title of the book and the author's name to any independent book retailer. They can order the book for you. I believe it is important to support small local bookstores. If you are in the Windsor or Essex County area — Biblioasis is located at 1520 Wyandotte Street East.

I have, however, included links to the most popular on-line chains below:
