You may be able to find your books from local bookstores such as Moe’s or Pegasus Books. Please note that just because Pegasus lists a book on its web site, it does not mean they will stock them in the store. Your best bet is to call them or visit.

If you wish to, you may also order them via Amazon. Please note that students can usually get a really cheap deal on Amazon Prime membership, which gets you next day shipping for the price of normal shipping. For your convenience, here are the books you will need:
