Just a quick note to get back to you about the book pack you put together for me to give to my sister, who loves fantasy and science fiction. My gosh, what a great job you did. She loved ALL of them!
Thank you for sending them out (books to military). They are loving them and are very much appreciative of your generosity.
Thank you very much for doing this for our military.
I had an incredible experience with Sue from J Crawford's Books; ordering books online and doing curbside pickup due to COVID-19 restrictions.
