Bill

A big thank you for shipping the Hardy Boy books so quickly. I am so impressed with your client service values and the care and attention you put into delivering the books. The books are in wonderful shape and it was so heartwarming to open the box and find the books individually wrapped in paper. It brought a big smile to my face knowing the deep respect you have for books that are gracefully aging. These specific books are fond remininces of my early reading days. Your precious care is deeply appreciated.
