FEEDBACK


from Elizabeth in Australia

What a lovely surprise when I arrived home very late last night - my books were waiting for me at the front door.
This is the quickest I have ever received anything bought on the internet. I wish I had discovered you sooner! On the 1st November I ordered some books from Borders and I am still waiting for them.
I was thrilled with how carefully packaged they were and the hardback - what a beautiful book! My granddaughter will love them.
I will certainly recommend you to all my book loving family and friends!
Once again thankyou for a great service.

 

from Ed in the US

"The book FOR THE TERM OF HIS NATURAL LIFE by Marcus Clark arrived today.
I only wish I could find a way to leave FEEDBACK about this transaction so all could see it. Since I can not do that here is to you girl.
GREAT PRODUCT, PRICE, DELIVERY, COMMUNICATION, SELLER. TO ANY READER THIS IS THE PLACE TO GET YOUR SECOND HAND BOOKS THAT ARE HARD TO FIND. THIS LADY WILL GO OUT OF HER WAY IN ORDER TO HELP YOU WITH YOUR BOOK NEEDS.
MY HIGHEST RECOMMENDATIONS FOR HER AND HER STORE.
THANK YOU FROM THE CENTRAL USA FOR THE GREAT SERVICE YOU HAVE GIVEN THIS HARD TO FIND BOOK SEARCHER. "

from Jill in the UK:
Thank you! It has arrived today all safe and sound - what excitement. It
is amazing to receive a childhood favourite from across the world. I have
kept the airmail sticker with the Southern Cross and popped it inside to
remind me of the wonder that books can bring. Warmest regards, Jill

from Ingrid in NSW:
"Thank-you so very much for the delightful books which have arrived safely.
I do appreciate the special efforts made in packaging them properly; they arrived in excellent condition.
I am really thrilled with the whole collection; they are a gorgeous set indeed.
Thank-you very much for doing business with me; I hope to purchase from you again soon. Your catalogue on your web-site is super. I have not yet actually completely unpacked & unwrapped each separate book, this being a very busy week for me; I have saved that pleasure for the coming weekend. It is something I really love doing. The condition of the few books I have completely unwrapped is really super; they are certainly the best editions I have ever seen of the Billabong Books.
I am so pleased to have the whole set at last; they will be much enjoyed by all generations of my family, even if actually intended for my young daughter. I can assure you they will now have a permanent home with our family.
I know they will be a great pleasure to Emily on her birthday."

from Albert in the UK:
" That has to be the most amazing delivery speed that I've encountered, thank you so much. It took a week from ordering the book to its arrival yesterday. A week to get round the world is pretty fantastic, specially when you consider that I bought some books in England over two weeks ago and
they still haven't arrived.
The book itself is also one of the best I've seen. If I didn't know it was 45 years old I'd think it was a couple of years at most, and so clean - wow.
Apologies for raving, but your service and the quality of the book is second to none. "

from Julie in Qld
"What a delight to receive my books today. They were in excellent condition and expertly packaged. "
