I don't think I have ever before felt the urge to write to a business, but I wanted to let you know that I have been extremely pleased with everything I have received. I started acquiring older titles when I decided to read some of the early writings in my field. While I noticed that some books were available digitally, I quickly discovered that nothing compares to having the actual books in my hands. For me, they inspire a feeling of deep respect for the work of these past authors that just cannot arise similarly from an eReader or a PDF. All of the books I ordered have been beautiful, packed with obvious care, and shipped in lightning speed. I'm hooked! The next time I head downstate I will look forward to visiting your store in person! Best Regards - Lisa.
