Feedback from a customer!

Hi there Jo Ann,
Just wanted to let you know that I received the book that I ordered from you........A Girl of the Limberlost. I am so happy with it. I have to say that I have been looking for a copy of that book for a long time. When I was a young teen (13 or so) I had a copy just like that. I treasured that book, it was a favorite of mine. Later on when I was in my twenties I moved and unfortunatly my book got lost in that move. I was very sad and didn't think I would ever find an exact copy again. A year ago I started the search on ebay hoping that maybe I would find it. I never did, so the day I ordered the book from you I did a search on one of the search engines and it brought up the web site for Abebooks. So I went on there and went through a lot of pages. I said a prayer and God told me to keep on flipping through and then I came across your listing so I thought I would take a look. When I saw the picture I was delighted. It was the exact match to the book I once had. Today I received the book in the mail and when I opened it up it took me back to having that special book in my early teens. I am so happy and want to say Thank You!! I love books so to have lost a treasured book was sad for me. I know God answered my prayers that day and He talked to me and told me to keep on looking, I was going to find my book. Keep on making people happy and God Bless you!
Sincerely,
C...

It sure makes me feel good to have someone tell me they have found a lost treasure from their past. This part of what makes being a bookseller and specializing in out-of-print books fun!

I always think it is great when a customer finds a book that they have lost and we as booksellers can provide them with another copy. I also enjoy receiving notes from customers telling me why they have bought a specific book, like the author is my Uncle or Brother or Grandfather. I get quite a few orders were family members are buying books that family members have written. Great post, thanks for sharing that.

Yes, Debra, those are the moments that make us happy to be doing what we're doing, aren't they?

I have another tale to tell. Maybe I'll do that next...
