Course requests for both J-term and Spring 2019 may now be viewed on this website. PLEASE NOTE: Texbook information is tentative. Changes in titles can occur and changes in retail pricing WILL occur. The Book Shop strives to price their books competively for you, the student. If you see the phrase, "To Be Determined," required course materials have not been adopted. Please check back.

J-term books will be available for sale in the store and on the website beginning Thursday, December 5. Study Abroad textbooks will be available, earlier. Please check in the Book Shop. Final pricing on books and comparison page for spring 2019 term may be viewed on Thursday, January 10.

Fall 2018 textbooks are still available to order/rent on this website or you can purchase or rent your books IN the Book Shop. However, we will begin returning books to the publishers beginning the first part of October. To be certain you have all the books you need for classes, the Book Shop strongly encourages you to obtain those books now. If a book you need is not available, please contact the Book Shop and we can order a copy for you.

Textbook information is as up to date as possible based on information provided to us by faculty and price quotes from publishers. Please note that because textbook information can change at any time (faculty changes, publisher upgrades, cancelled classes, etc.) we are not responsible for information from this site for the purchase of textbooks from other sources. Students purchasing course materials from the Luther Book Shop site are protected under the store's return policies. If your course book is not listed, the textbooks are yet to be determined.

The Book Shop is owned and operated by Luther College and dollars spent here support Luther students, faculty and staff.
