11:22AM - Unbound Books is now on hiatus....

feel free to check out http://www.UnboundBooks.org

we have taken the site completely down and put up a message about being on hiatus. unbound is not going to stay down forever like many distros. we do plan to open again before new years' 2007. we just needed to get on top of things.

those who have orders currently. don't fret you will recieved them or your refunds some time next week. also, folks that have things on consignment with us, we are also working to pay everyone back. that is a big reason we're on hiatus. since we didn't have access to updating the site or taking it down to stop people from ordering when we were out of stock, we have gotten severely in debt from the project and did not want it to get any worse.

hugs and revolution,
Unbound Books

7:53PM - Please wait on ordering this week...

Hey, All,

Due to serious viruses wiping out two of our computers (including the one we use to upload things for the unbound website) we cannot update the website but we are completely out of a lot of the stock currently listed. We will still try to fill your orders and should you order something that is out of stock you will recieve a refund in the mail. But to help avoid confusion please wait on making any orders through the mail or paypal until we've had the chance to update the site.

9:09AM - All orders....

All orders from July 1st - through today, August 9th [except for orders paid with eChecks that are not cleared yet] are going to be sent out throughout today and tomorrow. eCheck orders will be sent out the day after they are cleared.

*Orders that were made in July will be sent out 2-3 day priority mail (extra cost paid by us), to make up for our lateness.

*Orders made in August will be sent either Priority 2-3 days or media mail (1-2 weeks) depending upon the shipping costs paid for the order through paypal or mail order.

*Mail Order: Please , please, remember to send enough money to cover the shipping and not just the order itself. Thanks.

*International Orders through Paypal: Please do not make any international orders (outside the U.S., Mexico, and Canada) through Paypal until hearing from us via email about the shipping rates to add to your order.

The order we have currently for the Netherlands will be going out today or tomorrow cheapest rate possible. Which means it will be recieved in about 3 weeks or so, the extra postage cost past what was paid will be paid by us this first time in order to prevent delays. But in the future please check with us on your shipping rate.

We are working on developing a system for sending out orders that is more efficent than the ways things are currently done. Possibly involved 2 days a month that are definite days when all orders are sent and have it posted on the site which days those are so that everyone has an idea of when they will recieving their orders. This blog and the website will let you know what we come up with.

Take care. Cuidate.

2:03PM - Order Update..

First off, I just wanted to let folks know that a dear friend of ours, Sketch (Ken Hunt) passed away last monday and we've been planning hir memorials and writing obituaries...this accounts for some of our lateness with orders. To learn more about hir, please check out the center panel on http://chicago.indymedia.org

As for before Sketch's passing, we were core organizers for the Anarchist Feeder to the downtown M19 Anti-War demo and therefore too swamped to do Unbound. We plan to get back on focus starting this evening.

That said, all orders will be sent sometime this week.

Order being sent today:
Ismahan Sadiq's order from Apple Valley, MN

...more updates coming soon, including tons of new merch and the adult section that has been long and coming. Also, we may be switching from Paypal to a different online ordering company that accepts folks buying adult material and isn't as horrible as Paypal. much love, unbound

9:08AM - Small Update, Big Ideas...

So as depression sets in because we are all in for another 4 (OR MORE) years of Bush as president [and because we know Kerry would be exactly the same] and as many of us are searching for the nearest cave to wait this all out in Unbound Books has decided to get back on the ball. We must all keep moving forward, in fact we should be running forward, while drumming and screaming. There is much work to be done in this country and in regards to the anarchist and anti-war movements here. While Fallujah is being stormed this very moment and it's getting harder to find comrades that aren't depressed into drunken-ness - this site will be going through a major overhaul if for no other reason than believing that it's time to step things up. It's time to start, work on, and complete projects that make this life worth living. Time to focus on our dreams and why we spend so many nights in the streets, why many of us don't sleep anymore, and what world we are really striving for.
