I just received a book I ordered. I wanted to tell you how pleased I was with the condition of the book and especially how it was meticulously wrapped for shipment. I order a lot of books and your service far exceeds what I normally see from book dealers. I hope in the future I'll be able to find books I need at your book store. Keep up the good work. - Bruce V.
