I can't begin to thank you for the personal care and attention you all gave to me on Saturday - when I came to Argosy during your tech breakdown. I love the four marvelous books I purchased for my nephew and the generous wrapping you provided. I shall always remember the experience and look forward to seeing you again soon. With appreciation! - Leigh C.
