The VIN Bookstore will be closed for maintenance September 2-3, 2015. During this maintenance period you will still be able to browse the bookstore, but you will not be able to place orders. The bookstore will be back online Friday, September 4, 2015 at Noon ET.

While the bookstore is closed, you may want to check out reviews on textbooks you are interested in purchasing. The VIN Book Reviews area has categories of topics to search for a text that you may want to purchase. Many of the reviews were written by our own VSPN Moderators and members. There are also reviews listed for texts that are not offered in the VIN Bookstore, but those texts that are available in the bookstore will have a hyperlink that you can click to order the text after September 4.
