Book Covering

How do I request to have my books covered?

There are two ways that you can request to have your books covered -

1. View your shopping cart by clicking on the "Cart" icon at the top right of each page. From the cart page, click the "YES. Please cover my books" button to request to have your books covered; or

2. Visit the "School Book Cover" page and click the "Cover My Books" button to request to have your books covered.

 

The number of covers required is dynamically calculated based on the books in your order.

Please note:  By default only books, workbooks, novels, dictionaries, exam papers and revision guides are covered. Copies are not covered. Where a book consists of a "pack" or "set", the system will automatically include the appropriate number of covers for the elements in the pack (e.g. textbook & workbook sets).

Why am I being charged for more book covers than there are books in my cart?

The reason you have been charged for more book covers than the quantity of books you can see in your order, is that there are certain books in your order that are part of a set/pack. Books that are a set/pack have extra books that shall also be covered.

Please note:  By default only books, workbooks, novels, dictionaries, exam papers and revision guides are covered. Copies are not covered. Where a book consists of a "pack" or "set", the system will automatically include the appropriate number of covers for the elements in the pack (e.g. textbook & workbook sets).
