If profits are slim or their time costs money, it might not be worth the guaranteed sale. Individual book orders may be such an antiquated process that even publishers might not support it well because it's not worth their time either, especially if they're all busy supporting automated, online sales. Individual or manual attention is expensive. That's not to say the bookseller couldn't reach over to their computer and order it through Amazon for you as a considerate service to a customer, but would you pay a little more - maybe 15% or 20% - to them for the effort? Would you be taken aback if they requested it?
