(CNN) - Bookstore chain Barnes & Noble has teamed up with Google to offer customers same-day delivery.

Rival retailer Amazon offers a similar delivery service.

Right now, same-day delivery is only offered in Manhattan, west Los Angeles and the San Francisco area.

One of the ways the bookstore will get items to people so fast is to use their retail stores as a hub.

Employees hand off the books to a Google courier who then delivers it.
