Hello. I ordered a book from you via Abebooks a short while ago; it arrived today. Since one cannot leave feedback there, I wanted to send you a note to thank you for packaging the book so carefully! I know the item wasn't very expensive, but it was a gift for my mother, who was quite thrilled to receive it. Thank you very much for taking the time to be so thorough. Best regards - E. Bell
