Our website is new but we're really old. Weller Book Works was founded as Zion Bookstore nearly 90 years ago. Over the years we’ve been known as Sam Weller’s Books and Sam Weller’s Zion Bookstore. We are in our third generation of operations, owned and managed by Tony and Catherine Weller. Our staff includes three generations of Wellers and a remarkable team of book lovers. Our bookstore sells new, used and rare books in a space built to surprise and delight you in historic Trolley Square.

We’re delighted to answer your questions and help you select just the right book.

Oathbringer Shipping

Dear Sanderson Fans,

We know you're eager to begin reading your signed and numbered copies of Oathbringer. As we ship to "arrive on or as close to the publication date as possible," some of you will be able to begin reading today; the rest of you, shortly. 

There are a couple of things of which we need to make you aware:

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: We had a problem with our shipper while processing the First Class International shipments. So we have upgraded First Class International packages that weren't shipped prior to discovering the problem to USPS Priority mail free of charge. According to the USPS, the books that did ship prior to discovery may pass through the system. We haven't had any sent back to us yet. If any packages are returned, we will let each customer know via email and reship via USPS Piority mail. 

ALL CUSTOMERS: We focused on wrapping and shipping your books as quickly as possible. That means we're just getting to putting in your tracking numbers now. We apologize for leaving you in the dark like that but figured you'd rather have the books sooner than have all the details about how they were making their way to you more slowly.

Thank you for your orders and thank you for helping us break in our new website.
