Its [sic] just that I did it the one way I saw it and feel sort of empty about it. And my personal feelings about how wise we were to go to war last time for ideals unrealized and how wise we would be this time, save in defense of our country, are still too mixed up and uncertain...But I am honest enough to know that I can't turn em out unless I feel em..."

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.
