My main desire to get it from an actual store is that I can pick out the best copy I can find. Often Amazon, etc. copies get damaged.

I'm written a "suggestion" to Amazon again. They used to put a bubble wrap around the books. Now it throw them in box. Not so good in tropical downpour Fl. Shipping boxes can get wet very easily!

Wow, now I feel lucky! I've never had a shipment NOT come bubble wrapped and perfect. Maybe it's the difference is distribution centers? (I'm west)

Oh heck... I had forgotten about the FL weather when I packaged your parcel! It should be okay (I hope) because the bag is lined with bubble wrap.

I would get it and read it now, then wrap it up, open it Christmas Day and read it again. I'm going to start doing that with the kid's toys they seldom play with. I know, I'm a little devil. :devil:
